Yemeni officials and tribal leader said yesterday that a drone strike by a US drone killed al-Qaeda bomb maker Ibrahim al-Asiri, a major loss to al-Qaeda in Yemen.
According to Okaz newspaper, al-Asiri was killed by a raid in eastern Yemen.
The tribal leader said that Asiri was targeted while standing next to his car, accompanied by two or four members of the organization.
A UN report said last week that Asiri, 36, may have been killed in the first half of 2017.
