Terrorist cornered.

Pakistani troops unleashed renewed artillery and air assaults today on an area near the Afghanistan border where Osama bin Laden's right hand man is believed to be cornered.

Al Qaida's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahri may have been wounded in two days of fierce fighting between Pakistani soldiers and about 200 fighters loyal to the terror network.

Renewed attacks were launched this morning, with helicopter gunship and artillery fire spreading to two more villages in the remote region of South Waziristan.

Pakistan was reported to be preparing for a major air assault on the region to kill al-Zawahri or drive him into their clutches.
