WSJ NEWS ALERT: U.S. Airstrike Kills Top al Qaeda Operative Behind CIA Bombing


An unmanned drone strike last week in Pakistan apparently killed a top al Qaeda
trainer who helped supervise December’s suicide bombing at a Central
Intelligence Agency post in Afghanistan, U.S. officials say.

The strike on a suspected bomb-making facility in Miram Shah killed as many as 15 people,
including Sadam Hussein Al Hussami, also known as Ghazwan Al-Yemeni, according
to people familiar with the strike. The Obama administration doesn’t comment on
such attacks.
