Ayman Zawahiri was largely accepted and respected by Al Qaeda’s different regional branches due to his role in forming the group in the 1980s. But the next leader might have problems exerting such authority, experts say.
The existing terrorist threat is likely to evolve in a far different way from the one witnessed after the 9/11 attacks.
Since 9/11, far-right extremists have killed more Americans on US soil than any international extremist group.

Afghanistan, often referred to as the ‘graveyard of the empires’, is often written about but is constantly misunderstood, and the same goes for the Taliban.
