Osama bin Laden's former aide returns to Afghanistan after Taliban take over

Aug 30, 2021 16:31 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Amin-ul-Haq, a senior al-Qaeda leader and Osama bin Laden's former aide, has returned to his native Nangarhar province after it fell to the Taliban, according to reports. 

He was the security in charge of Osama bin Laden in Tora Bora and became close to him in the 80s when he worked with Abdullah Azzam, a Palestinian cleric who led the mobilisation of Arab fighters to Afghanistan in the 1980s.

Haq also held many official posts in Nangarhar, which borders Pakistan, when the Taliban ruled most of Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001.
