Saudi Arabia seeks Saeed al-Shehri's widow repatriation

 Yemen Post Staff

Officials in Yemen confirmed Saudi Arabia demanded that Saeed al-Shehri's widow be returned to Saudi Arabia. As a result the Yemeni authorities, which issued an arrest warrant against her person announced they would allow her to be extradited back to Saudi Arabia if she gives herself up to the authorities.

Saeed al-Shehri, al-Qaeda's former deputy in Yemen and Saudi national was reported killed in an airstrike on January 22sd, 2012.

Having been identified as a terrorist by U.S intelligence services, al-Shehri was arrested in December 2001 in Pakistan, near the Afghani border and immediately transferred to U.S-run Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba. He remained imprisoned there for six years before being allowed back to his homeland, Saudi Arabia.

Upon his arrival he was enrolled in a rehabilitation and reintegration center for Islamic extremists.

In 2009 he traveled to Yemen where he resumed his terror activities as deputy leader of al-Qaeda.

The elusive terror militants was several times reported dead or captured by the Yemeni authorities only to be declared "at large" several weeks later.

On January 19, 2010 Yemen officials announced to the world al-Shehri had been captured and was now in custody. On February 22, 2010 the release of an audio recording established contrary to previous he remained at large.

In September 2012, released a statement in which they advanced al-Shehri had been killed in a U.S-led drone strike. Less then a week later, Yemeni officials told the press DNA test established al-Qaeda's most wanted had not indeed perished in the attack. While the authorities argued back and forth on the veracity of the allegations and reports, it was soon clear al-Shehri had once again eluded the authorities.

Finally, on January 22, 2013 officials confirmed al-Qaeda deputy had succumbed from wounds he sustained in 2012 drone attack.

Now that his grave has been located and identified the authorities will now send a DNA sample to Saudi Arabia for identification, putting to rest speculations.
