“Justice has been delivered, and this terrorist leader is no more,” said President Joe Biden.
Ayman al-Zawahri, who has led al-Qaida since Osama bin Laden's death in 2011, has been killed in a U.S. military operation.

The strike, carried out over the weekend, was the first attack since American forces left Afghanistan last year.

- The StoryGraph Toolkit extracted URIs from the biggest story of the day from the StoryGraph service
- Hypercane performed the following steps:
- It accepted the list of original resource URIs from the output of the StoryGraph Toolkit, and queried the Memento Aggregator to find as many mementos as possible
- For resources that were not already mementos, it submitted them to web archives with ArchiveNow
- It analyzed all mementos to automatically discover the most frequent sumgrams and named entities present in the overall story
- It analyzed all images in these mementos to automatically select the best image for the overall story
- It then formatted the data for the story based on all of this input
- Raintale took the input from Hypercane and rendered the final product with information supplied by MementoEmbed
