DUBAI - Al-Qaida's Yemen-based wing confirmed on Monday the death of US-born militant cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who US officials said was killed 10 days ago in a CIA drone strike.
Awlaki, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula's (AQAP) most high-profile member, was considered an influential international recruiter to al-Qaida and responsible for recruiting militants and planning attacks against the United States."We confirm to the jihadi Ummah (nation) that is uprising against oppression, the martyrdom of the mujahid heroic sheikh Abu Abdul Rahman Anwar bin Nasser al-Awlaki," AQAP said on a website, according to the SITE online monitoring service.
