Yemen has launched a probe into whether al-Qaida is behind the killing of a man who may have led security officials to an associate of Osama bin Laden, a Yemeni security official said on Wednesday. Alsayed Ali al-Hajeri, a 50-year-old father of two, was stabbed and shot to death Tuesday night when masked gunmen broke into his home in an upscale suburb of the Yemeni capital, the official said. Al-Hajeri is believed by locals to have informed on Qaed Salim Sunian al-Harethi, an associate of bin Laden, the leader of the al-Qaida terror network.
