Pakistan intelligence agencies reportedly arrest Ayman Al Zawahiri daughter, son in law: Sources
ISLAMABAD – Pakistani intelligence agencies have reportedly arrested high profile al-Qaeda operatives in an intelligence-based operation in Karachi.
The UK-based organisation Islamic Theology of Counter-Terrorism (ITCT) reports link that Umar Jalal Kathio, the son-in-law of al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, was among the multiple al-Qaeda operatives arrested from Karachi a few days ago.
Kathio, who also served as Osama bin Laden’s personal bodyguard and driver, has reportedly been shifted to an undisclosed location along with his wife.
"The timing of the announcement of these arrests is interesting since it comes right after President Trump said some unsavory things about Pakistan in an interview, which made waves in Pakistan."

The reported arrests come a day after US President Donald Trump slammed Pakistan for what he said ‘doing nothing for the US’ and alleged that the country sheltered Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden for years.
Trump, in an interview, said that people in Pakistan knew the top terrorist leader was living there. “But living in Pakistan right next to the military academy, everybody in Pakistan knew he was there,” he told Fox News.
