Al-Qaida militant in Charlie Hebdo attack killed, group says

MUKALLA, Yemen, May 7 (UPI) — Nasr Ibn Ali al-Ansi, the al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula militant who claimed responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, has been killed, the terror group said.
A video statement from an AQAP spokesman said al-Ansi was killed in a U.S. drone strike, SITE Intelligence Group, a terrorist monitoring organization, said. The video said al-Ansi was killed in April in the port city of Mukalla, Yemen.

A U.S. official confirmed al-Ansi was dead but didn’t say whether it was from a drone strike or when his death took place
