Al-Qaida executes 2 alleged spies after Yemen leader killed

Al-Qaeda’s Yemeni branch has killed two men accused of spying for the United States and hung their bodies off a bridge.

Witnesses say al-Qaeda gunmen in the southern city of Mukalla read out charges before shooting the two men, one of whom was accused of guiding the US drone that killed commander Nasr al-Ansi and a media specialist known as Muhannad Ghalab in April. The killings came a day after al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, as the Yemeni affiliate is known, said its leader, Nasir al-Wahishi, was killed in a US drone strike last week.
