Al Qaeda's second-in-command on FBI's most wanted list 'killed by Afghan security forces'

Abu Muhsin al-Masri was charged with conspiracy to kill US nationals and providing resources to a foreign terrorist organisation.

The man believed to be al Qaeda's second-in-command has been killed, Afghan security forces have said.

Abu Muhsin al-Masri was on the FBI's most wanted list and was charged with conspiracy to kill US nationals.

He was killed in a special operation in Ghazni province in eastern Afghanistan, the country's national directorate of security said in a tweet.

It added that al-Masri was al Qaeda's supreme leader in the Indian subcontinent.

He had also been charged in America with providing material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organisation.

The FBI said he sometimes went by the name Husam Abd-al-Ra'uf and was an Egyptian national.

It is 19 years this month since the US invaded Afghanistan in the wake of the 11 September attacks.
