Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security (NDS) published this news late on Saturday.
Al-Masri has been charged in the United States with having provided material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, and conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals, Reuters reports.
Al-Masri, believed to be al Qaeda’s second-in-command, was killed during a special operation in Ghazni province.
