Al-Qaida leader pledges allegiance to new Taliban chief

Al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has purportedly pledged his group’s allegiance to the new leader of the Taliban following the death of Mullah Mohammad Omar.

The pledge came in a 10-minute audio recording that surfaced on social media and was later carried by the SITE Intelligence Group. The recording, which resembles previous audio clips released by the al-Qaida leader, pledges allegiance to Mullah Omar’s successor, Mullah Akhtar Mansoor.
