Yemen: Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader killed in a US strike in Yemen
A top al-Qaeda militant who claimed responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo attack has been killed, according to the SITE intelligence group.
It quoted al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) as saying Nasser bin ali al Ansi was killed in a US strike in Yemen.
The militant group said he died alongside his eldest son and several others.
The report could not be independently verified.
Al Ansi appeared in video posted online in January claiming AQAP was behind the attack at the office of the satirical magazine in Paris, which left 12 people dead.
