Majid al-Majid, the commander of the al-Qaeda-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigades, has died in custody in a hospital in Lebanon.

Majid al-Majid, a Saudi who is on Saudi Arabia's most-wanted-terrorists list, was arrested in Beirut recently.

An army general told Associated Press the militant died of kidney failure.

The group has carried out attacks across the Middle East and claimed a bomb attack on Iran's Beirut embassy in November that killed 23 people.
