KABUL—Afghan security forces have killed Abu Muhsin alMasri (also spelt Abu Muhsen Almisry), a senior al Qaeda leader who was on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Most Wanted Terrorists list, Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security (NDS) said in a tweet late on Saturday.

AlMasri has been charged in the United States with having provided material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organisation, and conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals.

AlMasri, believed to be al Qaeda‘s second-in-command, was killed during a special operation in Ghazni province, the NDS said.
