“International forces in Afghanistan say they have killed their number two insurgent target in the country–senior al-Qaeda leader Abdul Ghani. The Saudi citizen died in an air strike almost two weeks ago [April 14, 2011] in Kunar province, near Pakistan, Nato-led forces said. Abdul Ghani, also known as Abu Hafs al-Najdi, ran training camps and planned attacks on tribal leaders and foreigners, the Nato statement said. Nato estimates some 100 al-Qaeda members still operate in Afghanistan.”
