Al-Qaeda Terrorist Tied to USS Cole Bombing Killed -Eric Schmitt
Yemeni authorities said Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al-Quso, 37, a senior al-Qaeda militant on the FBI's Most Wanted list in connection with the bombing of the Navy destroyer USS Cole that killed 17 sailors in 2000, was killed in an airstrike.
Yemen's embassy in Washington described Quso as "a leading figure in the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula."
The State Department had offered a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture.
