Al Qaeda leader’s whereabouts confirmed by ‘visual evidence’ and ‘other means’ before strike

US National Security Council Coordinator John Kirby said US intelligence collected "visual evidence" and "evidence provided by other means" to confirm that the man who was later hit and killed by the drone strike was Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

He went on to say he couldn’t reveal much more information, but that the evidence was "high confidence".
