Osama bin Laden’s former security chief Amin-ul-Haq returns to Afghanistan

Amin-ul-Haq, a major al-Qaeda leader in Afghanistan, has returned to his native Nangarhar province after it fell to the Taliban, reports said.

He was a close aide to former al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, who was killed by US forces in Pakistan’s Abbottabad in 2011.

Amin-ul-Haq 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 in Maktaba Akhidmat.
