A drone strike in the eastern Yemeni province of Shabwa last month killed the top religious cleric for Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), a source close to the group said on Tuesday.
"A drone strike had targeted Sheikh Adel al-Abab's vehicle but he escaped and fled to a mountainous region where a raid by another drone killed him immediately," the source told AFP on condition of anonymity.
Abab had graduated from the Dawa Islamic studies center, in Sana'a and had served as the top religious cleric for AQAP.
American drone strikes against Al-Qaeda terrorists are frequent in Yemen, home of the network believed by the United States to be the deadliest and most active of the jihadi terrorists.
AQAP is led by Nasser al-Wuhayshi, who in July 2011 reaffirmed the group's allegiance to Ayman al-Zawahiri, head of the worldwide Al-Qaeda network since the killing in May of its founder, Osama bin Laden.
U.S. drones strikes in Yemen nearly tripled in 2012 compared with 2011, from 18 to 53, according to the New America Foundation, a Washington-based think tank.

Seems lefties love Obama's Bush Doctrine. ...kill 'em there, not here.
Oh waiter! Another 72 virgins please!
... and if any American citizens were killed as collateral damage, “at this late date, what difference does it make?”
Why does the title start with “Source:” What is that supposed to mean?
Forgot to mount a camera on the missile they fired up his a@#, but somebody confirmed the kill.
Uh...we regret to inform you, sir, that due to the divers holy wars being waged and missiles and drones and such...well, sir, all we’ve got left are...well...technical virgins.
Yes, again? It seems like we kill the top Alqueda in Yemen every two weeks. We must be working down the list a ways.
Do religious clerics for Al-Qaeda get virgins?
“And they’re goats.”
LOL. Male goats?
No. They get the highly skilled, veteran whores who know every trick there is. It’s the poor slobs who die young and stupid who get the virgins.
What’s so great about doing virgins throughout eternity anyway? At some point it must be annoying to have to bust the cherry all over again, and listen to the same chick go through the same pain and pleasure routine, even though you’ve bedded her a thousand times.
Yes, of course. The jihadi closet cases don’t like women.
