    Two mid-level al Qaeda leaders killed in Yemen
    5 may 2011

    ADEN, Yemen – Two mid-level al Qaeda leaders were killed in Yemen, Osama bin Laden's ancestral homeland, on Thursday, the defense ministry said.

    Residents said they saw a drone in the air at the time.

    The Yemeni defense ministry identified the men as two brothers, Musa'id and Abdullah Mubarak, and said they were killed at around dawn in the remote province of Shabwa, where a Yemen-based wing of al Qaeda is active.
