Awlaki Reported Dead

September 30

From the Guardian:

The ministry said Yemeni forces killed Awlaki and some of his associates, though it did not say where and when. “The terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed along with some of his companions,” it said in a statement sent by text message to journalists.
His death could not be immediately corroborated.
The US-born civil engineer-turned radical Muslim cleric had been implicated in a botched attempt to bomb a US-bound plane in 2009. His internet sermons and his slick magazine Inspire had positioned him as a leading figure in the radical movement following the death in May of Osama bin Laden.
Aged 40, he was young, eloquent, spoke English and Arabic and used Facebook and YouTube to exhort Muslims around the world to kill Americans.
