A U.S.-born al-Qaida cleric believed to have helped coordinate and inspire attacks on the U.S. has been killed in Yemen. American and Yemeni officials say the same U.S. military counter-terrorism unit that got Osama bin Laden used a drone and jet strike today to kill Anwar al-Awlaki. It’s the most prominent al-Qaida death since Osama bin Laden’s death in May.
