wahayshiAlso on Wednesday 06/17/2015 Al Qaeda militants in Yemen killed two alleged Saudi spies, named al-Mutairi and al-Khaledi, residents said, accusing them of planting tracking devices which enabled the assassination of the group’s leader, Nasser al-Wuhayshi (l),  in a suspected U.S. UAV drone strike last week.

Residents said al Qaeda charged the men with planting chips which pinpointed the location of several al Qaeda commanders slain in recent months, including its boss Nasser al-Wuhayshi, whose death along with two other militants the group announced on Tuesday.

Images posted on social media by al Qaeda supporters showed armed militants on a beach carrying banners surrounding two blindfolded men kneeling on the sand.

Later on Wednesday, residents reported that a suspected U.S. drone bombed a Mukalla hotel used by al Qaeda militants, killing 6 people. The events suggest a sort of intelligence cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the USA .
