President Joe Biden said Monday that a U.S. drone strike in Afghanistan over the weekend killed top al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri, the successor of the terrorist network’s slain leader Osama bin Laden.

Al-Zawahri, 71, was standing on a balcony of a “safe house” in downtown Kabul that was hit by two missiles, according to a senior administration official, who discussed the attack with reporters on the condition of anonymity.
