Al Qaeda’s No. 2 Leader Killed: Report

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Al Qaeda’s No. 2 leader, Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, has been killed in Pakistan, according to an Associated Press report.

A senior Obama adminstration official Saturday disclosed the killing, according to the report.

Al-Rahman was a Libyan national and the terrorist network’s former operational leader, the report noted. He rose to the second-in-command position after al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed during a raid by Navy Seals on his compound in May.

Al Rahman was killed on Monday in the Pakistani tribal region of Waziristan, the AP report said, citing the anonymous administration official.

The official would not disclose how the al Qaeda leader was killed, the AP reported. However, on Monday a CIA unmanned drone strike was reported in Waziristan, the report noted.
