Top Al-Qaida Leader Reported Killed

Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, a founder of al-Qaida and its third in command, has been killed by a U.S. drone strike in the northern border regions of Pakistan, according to the terrorist group and a U.S. official.

The loss of Egyptian-born al-Yazid — also know as Saeed al-Masri — is a major blow for al-Qaida, and could hamper its ability to organize attacks on coalition forces in Afghanistan from its bases in Pakistan. Al-Yazid, 55, headed al-Qaida’s operations in Afghanistan, controlling everything from finances to mission planning. He is also believed to have arranged the financing of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.
