Osama's second-in-command wounded: Report

An agency report quoting the military chief of eastern Nangarhar province, Mohammad Zaman, said Osama bin Laden's second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahari was injured and possibly killed in an American air raid.

However, the report could not be independently confirmed.

Zaman, according to the report, said al-Zawahiri, an Egyptian, was at least wounded in the same bombing in which bin Laden's financial manager, Ali Mahmud, was killed on Monday.

The US has been carrying out heavy air raids on the sprawling Tora Bora cave complex south of Jalalabad where Laden and his associates are suspected to be holed up.

Al-Zawahiri, an Egyptian physician who founded Egyptian Islamic Jihad, was believed to be bin Laden's mentor and real brains behind the Al Qaeda group.

Another top aide to bin Laden, his military commander Mohammad Atef, was confirmed killed in an airstrike near Kabul last month.
