The United States says it has killed Ayman al-Zawahiri in a drone strike in Kabul.
Zawahiri became the al-Qaeda leader in 2011. He is said to have masterminded the 9/11 attacks that were used by the US as a pretext to invade Afghanistan.
The US stayed in Afghanistan for over 20 years, but failed to eradicate al-Qaeda.
