  • U.S. checking reports Al Qaeda’s leader in Yemen killed

    The Wall Street Journal - 06/15/2015

    Max Abrahms, a terrorism expert at Northeastern University, said al Qaeda has tried recently to present itself as a more moderate force in Yemen in a multifaceted conflict involving Houthi rebels. In Syria, the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front has battled against Islamic State militants as well as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

    Some coalition partners have begun to view the group more favorably, as a counterweight to Islamic State. The U.S. strike, if confirmed, could represent the U.S. commitment to disrupting al Qaeda, Mr. Abrahms said.
