Yemen says Fort Hood-linked imam may be dead
by Mohamed Sudam

Dec 24, 2009

SANAA (Reuters) - A Yemeni air raid may have killed the top two leaders of al Qaeda's regional branch on Thursday, and an American Muslim preacher linked to the man who shot dead 13 people at a U.S. army base may also have died, a Yemeni security official said.

Nasser al-Wahayshi, the Yemeni leader of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), and his Saudi deputy, Saeed al-Shehri, were believed to be among 30 militants killed in the dawn operation in the eastern province of Shabwa, said the official, who asked not to be identified.

U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki may also have died in the air strike which targeted a meeting of militants planning attacks on Yemeni and foreign oil and economic targets, he said.

This article is so interesting because it is so ludicrous and fake sounding??!! Real story: He's rotting in some jail over there or worse, they probably tortured and killed him in jail.

Relatives: US-born Yemeni cleric alive and well

By AHMED AL-HAJ, 12.25.09

SAN'A, Yemen -- Friends and relatives of a U.S.-born Yemeni radical cleric say he is alive and well following reports he may have been killed in a Yemeni airstrike against suspected al-Qaida hideouts.

The government said at least 30 militants, possibly including Anwar al-Awlaki, were killed in the airstrike in the remote Shabwa region.

But on Friday, a friend of the cleric, Abu Bakr al-Awlaki, said he was not among those killed. He refused to say if the cleric was attending the meeting targeted by Yemeni airplanes on Thursday. The strikes were carried out with U.S. and Saudi intelligence help.
