AYMAN AL-ZAWAHIRI

In the news:

"Pakistani troops say they have surrounded a senior al-Qaeda leader close to the Afghan border and are preparing to move in within hours."

If Ayman al-Zawahri is the above mentioned leader, my wild guess is that Osama bin Laden is not far away...

UPDATE 03/19/04:
The House of Representatives (search bill number h.r. 3782) has raised the reward for Osama bin Laden's capture to $50 million.

UPDATE 03/25/04: Ayman al-Zawahri has sent a tape to Al-Jazeera, including the following message:

"The crusade in Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya and Palestine is targeting Pakistan primarily, because America does not want Pakistan to be a special power in the center of Asia." (USA Today / AP, 03/25/04.)
