Saudi Arabia’s most wanted member of al Qaeda was killed in Yemen. Saeed Shahri was killed fighting government forces as part of the uprising in that country, according to al Arabiya. Shahri also considered himself the second most wanted terrorist in Yemen.
According to an Al Arabiya correspondent, Shahri’s family said he was severely injured after a joint Yemeni-U.S. operation targeting al-Qaeda members in Yemen in the second week of December, 2012.
After falling into a coma, Shahri was later declared dead and was buried in Yemen.
