Report: Al-Zawahiri caught in Pakistan
Osama bin Laden's top deputy has reportedly been captured near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, Israeli Radio reported Monday.
Ayman al-Zawahiri, an Egyptian physician and former head of Egypt's Islamic Jihad, has long been the No. 2 in al-Qaida's command structure.
Pakistani soldiers are credited with having caught al-Zawahiri.
Earlier Monday the U.S. commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan said there is little evidence of al-Qaida fighters still in Afghanistan.
Lt. Gen. David Barno also said Pakistan's crackdown on al-Qaida operatives has made life harder for fugitives hiding in tribal areas near the border.
