Top Al-Qaeda Leader Killed in Afghanistan: NATO

His name is - or was - Abdul Ghani, and he was the No. 2 insurgent target in all of Afghanistan. He ran training camps for terrorists, planned attacks on foreigners and even oversaw a suicide attack on a tribal leader the day he was killed. NATO says he is no more, after an airstrike in Kunar Province killed him, according to the BBC. The Saudi citizen is the highest ranked of 25 al-Qaeda leaders NATO claims to have killed in the last month. Bill Roggio, managing editor of Long War Journal, told CNN Abdul Ghani's real name is Saleh Naiv Almakhlvi Day, and he has been wanted by the Saudi government.
