Al-Qaida’s second in command secretly killed in Iran ED Director S K Mishra's tenure extended by 1 yr Al-Qaida’s second-highest leader, accused of being one of the masterminds of the deadly 1998 attacks on U.S. embassies in Africa, was killed in Iran three months ago, intelligence officials have confirmed. Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, who went by the nom de guerre Abu Muhammad gunned was al-Masri, down on the streets of Tehran by two assassins on a motorcycle on Aug. 7, the anniversary of the embassy attacks. He was killed along with his daughter, Miriam, the widow of Osama bin Laden’s son Hamza bin Laden. The attack was carried out by Israeli operatives at the behest of the United States, according to four of the officials. It is unclear what role if any was played by the United States, which had been tracking the movements of al-Masri and other al-Qaida opera- tives in Iran for years. The killing occurred in such a netherworld of geopolitical intrigue and counterterrorism spycraft that al-Masri’s death had been rumored but never confirmed until now. For reasons that are still obscure, al-Qaida has not announced the death of one of its top leaders, Iranian officials covered it up, and no country has publicly claimed responsibility for it. Al-Masri, who was about 58, was one of al-Qaida’s founding leaders and was thought to be first in line to lead the organization after its current leader, Ayman al-Zawahri.

United States President Donald Trump has hinted that he may accept defeat by Joe Biden as media declared the Democrat the winner in Georgia while the counting was still going on, solidifying his lead in the electoral college. Trump, who has so far refused to concede the election to Biden and has vowed to continue to challenge some of the results in courts, said on Friday while discussing the possibility of a coronavirus-induced lockdown, "Whatever happens in the future, who knows, which administration will be, I guess time will tell." This was likely his first time thinking aloud in public of another administration taking over on January 20. There have been speculations about how he would finally deal with a defeat, with hyperbolic scenarios painted by some of his hard-core critics of him not leaving the White House leading to a consti- tutional crisis. An unidentified senior aide to Trump was quoted by NBC as saying that he was likely to accept the election verdict while not admitting that he lost. Amid signs of a second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic sweeping the country Trump said he was not , going to impose a nationwide lockdown. He said, “Ideally we won't go to a lockdown. I will not go, this administration will not be going to a lockdown hopefully Whatever hap. pens in the future, who knows, which administration will be, I guess time will tell, but I can tell you this administration will not go to a lockdown.” He was speaking at the White House about his Operation Warpspeed to get vaccines against Covid-19 as quickly as possible.
