The Taliban said Thursday they have no knowledge of Ayman al-Zawahiri's presence in Afghanistan, two days after US President Joe Biden announced the Al-Qaeda chief's killing by a drone strike in Kabul.
"The leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has instructed the intelligence agencies to hold a comprehensive and serious investigation," said an official statement -- the Taliban's first mention of Zawahiri's name since Biden's announcement.
In announcing Zawahiri's death Tuesday, Biden declared "justice had been delivered" to the families of victims of the 9/11 attacks on the US.
