A man who said he is Ahmed al-Awlaki, the brother of the most-wanted U.S.-born terrorist in the world — al- Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula leader Anwar al-Awlaki — telephoned the Chinese newspaper, Xinhua, and said Anwar is still alive and was not part of the targeted convoy hit by a unmanned U.S. drone on Thursday.

In an email message transmitted to Xinhua early on Friday, a Yemen defense ministry spokesperson said that Anwar and a number of his followers were killed by Yemeni forces in Shabwa province in southeastern Yemen.

Anwar Al-Awlaki, the leader of Yemen-based al-Qaeda, was pronounced killed by Yemeni troops in late 2010, but the Yemeni government later retracted their claim, according to Ahmed al-Awlaki.

In a May 11, 2011 CNN news story — “Yemeni source: Drone strike misses al-Awlaki, hits two supporters,”
al-Awlaki had survived an American drone assault after he switched vehicles with fellow jihadis, a senior security official told CNN.

However, an Obama administration press release confirmed that Anwar al-Awlaki, was indeed killed in Yemen. The official press statement confirmed that al-Awlaki was killed in an attack on his convoy by a U.S. drone and jet fighter.

According to the White House press office, the attack was carried out by theCentral Intelligence Agency (CIA) and a U.S. Navy SEAL team , in which the CIA provided the intelligence and the SEALs provided the firepower.

Last month, Yemeni air force warplanes attacked several suspected al-Qaeda hideouts in various areas of the southern province of Abyan, killing 12 terrorists, including a leading member of the group, according to a U,S. intelligence source.

On September 20, warplanes launched three successful air strikes against targets of the al-Qaeda terrorists in the mountainous region of the provincial capital of Abyan province.

The planes bombed a vehicle belonging to the al-Qaeda terrorists, killing a leading member of the group named Fahd al-Qusu, according the intelligence source.
