Reports are coming in that a US airstike has taken the life of another prominent member of Al-Quida. While there is no official word, sources believe that Saeed al-Shihri was killed outside of a home in a southern Yemen province. He was killed, along with five other members of Al-Quida.

The AP reports that officials believe that the Yemen branch of Al-Quida is the most active. With yet another major player taken out, hopefully Al-Quida's dark shadow won't be cast so far around the world any more.
