Al-Qaida in Yemen announced on Tuesday that a top Saudi leader in the organization has been killed by a US air strike, according to a statement distributed by the group online.

The death of Ibrahim al-Rubaish may be a sign that a covert US drone program against Yemen's branch of the global militant group continues despite the evacuation of American military advisors from the country amid a worsening civil war.
