Amin al-Haq, one of the closest names to Osama bin Laden, “returned to Afghanistan”
The video, showing Al Hak in the front passenger seat of a vehicle, was reportedly filmed in Nangarhar on Monday. The video also shows that al-Haq did not greet the crowd that greeted him.
Afghan journalist Bilal Sarwary, who shared the image, said Amin al-Haq became close to bin Laden in the 1980s.
Amin al-Haq, who was the head of al-Qaeda, fled Tora Bora 20 years ago, just after the invasion of Afghanistan by the forces of the coalition led by the United States after the attacks of September 11.
Tora Bora, the area where Bin Laden was hiding at the time, was shelled after the invasion. After the fall of Kabul in December 2001, Al Qaeda withdrew to Tora Bora and the Waziristan region of Pakistan.

During talks held in Doha, the capital of Qatar, last year, in which the United States agreed to withdraw completely from Afghanistan, Taliban leaders were told that the way to be recognized by the international community was to completely isolate the al-Qaida organizations.
A recent UN report indicates that there are strong tribal and marital ties between the Taliban and al-Qaeda.
From the Asia-Pacific Foundation, Dr. Sajjan Gohel told the BBC that it is estimated that there are between 200 and 500 Al Qaeda operatives in the Kunar region of Afghanistan.
Gohel said that number is expected to increase. Osama Bin Laden, the founder of Al Qaeda, was killed by US special forces in Abbotabad, Pakistan in 2011.
