US has ‘visual confirmation’ of Zawahiri’s death


 The United States has “visual confirmation” of the death of the leader of Al-Qaeda Ayman al-Zawahiri, but no DNA proof, National Security Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby said on Tuesday.

“We do not have DNA confirmation. Based on multiple sources and methods we’ve gathered, we don’t need it,” Kirby told CNN when asked whether the US administration has DNA confirmation of Zawahiri’s death.

The United States has “visual confirmation” and confirmation via other sources and methods, he added.

Kirby noted that no civilians were injured and no civilian structures were damaged in the strike, he said.

US President Joe Biden said Monday that al-Zawahiri was killed in a US drone strike in Afghanistan on July 31.
