By Harold Hutchison

An American UAV strike in Yemen is believed to have killed four members of al-Qaeda. The strike comes as the United States has evacuated its embassy in Sana’a, the county’s capital, as embassies in another 18 countries remained closed.

More details about the threat emerged, including the fact that intercepts of electronic communication between al-Qaeda’s leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and Nasser al-Wuhayshi, who heads al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Zawahiri reportedly ordered Wuhayshi to carry out an attack.

The UAV strike is the fourth in the last two weeks.
