  Yet Another Al-Queda #3 killed/captured in Pakistan
NBC News reports the killing of Abu Hamza Rabia an alleged Al-Queda No. 3 in command.
The operational commander of al-Qaida, possibly the No. 3 official in the terrorist organization, was killed early Thursday morning by a CIA missile attack on a safehouse in Pakistan, officials told NBC News. Pakistan's information minister later confirmed the militant leader's killing.
The Last Al-Queda No. 3 Abu Faraj al-Libbi was captured on May 2005:
The alleged No. 3 man in al Qaeda -- believed responsible for the terror group's global operations -- has been captured in northwest Pakistan near the border with Afghanistan, Pakistani and U.S. officials said Wednesday.
Before that it was Saif al-Adel back in May 2003:
Al-Qaeda's third-ranked leader and alleged mastermind of this month's bombings in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, has been seized in Iran, according to senior intelligence sources.

The United States has identified Saif al-Adel as the most senior al-Qaeda member linked to the attacks that killed 34 people, including one Australian.

And then there was the mastermind of 9.11, Khalid Sheik Mohammed who was arrested in March 2003:
Al Qaeda's former No. 3, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed , a key planner of the Sept. 11 attacks who was arrested in March 2003 during a raid near Islamabad.
There are few more No. 3s:
The first man dubbed al-Qaida's No. 3, Mohammed Atef, was killed by a U.S. airstrike on Kabul in November 2001 as the Taliban regime crumbled in Afghanistan.

Abu Zubaydah, the next to assume the role, was captured March 28, 2002, in the eastern city of Faisalabad, Pakistan. The Saudi-born Palestinian survived gunshot wounds in the stomach, groin and leg, and has been in U.S. custody ever since.
