Taliban deny al-Qaida No. 2 hit by missile
2 hours ago
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A spokesman for a top Taliban official in Pakistan denied Saturday a U.S. media report that al-Qaida's No. 2 leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, may have been critically wounded or killed in a missile strike in recent days.
CBS News reported Friday it had obtained a copy of an intercepted letter from unidentified sources in Pakistan which urgently requested a doctor to treat al-Zawahri. The letter was purportedly from Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud and said al-Zawahri was in "severe pain" and his "injuries are infected."
Mehsud spokesman Maulvi Umar said, "We deny it categorically."
Why didn't Zawahri deny the death reports, odd. G
