SANAA - One of two brothers suspected of carrying out the deadly shooting at a French satirical weekly visited Yemen in 2011 and met the late al-Qaida preacher Anwar al Awlaki during his stay, a senior Yemeni intelligence source told Reuters on Friday.

The source said Said Kouachi was in Yemen for a number of months in 2011 as one of the foreigners who entered the country for religious studies, but there was no confirmed information whether he was trained by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), one of the group's most active affiliates.
