Security forces in Yemen have killed Said al-Shihri, described as the second-in-command of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), government officials say.
A Yemeni government website said al-Shihri was a Saudi national who was released by the US from detention in Guantanamo Bay in 2007.
Al-Shihri was reportedly killed in the Hadramawt area of southern Yemen.
