YEMEN QAEDA KILL ONE OF THEIR OWN FOR US SPYING
March 6, 2014: Al-Qaeda militants in Yemen executed one of their own after accusing him of spying for the United States, a security official said.
The man was executed by firing squad and his body was displayed at a football stadium near Shehr in the southeastern Hadramawt province, an Al-Qaeda stronghold, the source said.
When police arrived at the scene, the man was hanging with the Al-Qaeda black and white flag alongside a banner reading: "A US spy in the Arabian Peninsula," the official said.
A statement was also found in which AQAP threatened to execute "any intruder who infiltrates among Muslims, places chips in their vehicles and their wedding convoys and gets them killed in return for a few dirhams," according to the source.
"These spies are the striking force by which the crusader US enemy reaches us," it added.
The American military flies drones over Yemen in support of Sanaa's campaign against Al-Qaeda and has killed dozens of militants in a sharply intensified campaign in the past year. (Sources: Middle East Online, 06/03/2014)
