UN had absolutely no knowledge of Ayman al-Zawahiri’s whereabouts, says spokesperson | World News,The Indian Express

A spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General has said, asserting that the global body had “no information” about the whereabouts of al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri killed by a US drone strike in Kabul.

Member states must ensure that measures taken to counter terrorism comply with their obligations under international law, a spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General has said, asserting that the global body had “no information” about the whereabouts of al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri killed by a US drone strike in Kabul.

Al-Qaeda’s emir Ayman al-Zawahiri, who played a key role in the 9/11 attacks and later formed the group’s regional affiliate in the Indian subcontinent, was killed in a drone strike carried out by CIA on Saturday at a house in a posh locality in the Afghan capital where he was sheltering to reunite with his family. US President Joe Biden made the announcement of his killing on Monday, declaring that “justice has been delivered and this terrorist is no more”.

Zawahiri had assumed the leadership of al-Qaeda after the death of its founder Osama bin Laden.

“No, not at all. We had absolutely no knowledge,” Stephane Dujarric, Spokesman for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, when asked at the daily press briefing on Tuesday whether the UN had any knowledge that Zawahiri was in Kabul, Afghanistan’s capital.

In response to a question on the UN’s reaction to Zawahiri’s killing, Dujarric said the world organisation remains committed to fighting against terrorism and strengthening international cooperation in countering that threat.
