Bin Laden Raid May Lead to Zawahiri

Sunday, 08 May 2011 10:54 PM

The raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound has uncovered "positive intelligence" that is helping narrow down the locations of core al-Qaida leadership including the whereabouts of Ayman al Zawahiri, the former No. 2 man and a candidate to succeed bin Laden, CBS News reports.

The intelligence source said that there are "numerous" leads giving them locations but cautioned that they are fluid as al Qaeda leaders may be on the run, changing their locations.

"It's not as easy as going to an address. They may not be there anymore but it helps a point of reference," the source told CBS.

Analysts are working around the clock scrutinizing the documents and 2.7 terabytes of computer data, knowing that the information may be perishable.

The tribal of Pakistan targeted in the strike is called the Datta Khel, where senior al Qaeda leadership is suspected of operating their training camps.
