Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It was the Al-Qaeda leader in Iraq Al-Zarqawi that was killed in a bombing raid by the US forces.  The US tried to kill Ayman Al-Zawahiri with a drone I believe some months ago when he was scheduled to visit a village bordering to Afghanistan, but allegedly managed to kill a number of civilian's instead.

Al-Zawahiri's terrorist activities started in Egypt as the founder and the leader of a militant splinter group from The Muslim Brotherhood called Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ).
