Abu Yahya al-Libi Killed in Pakistan, via Voice of America:
The White House says the killing of al-Qaida's second-in-command, Abu Yahya al-Libi, apparently in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan's North Waziristan region, has further degraded the organization's leadership.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday that the U.S. intelligence community has confirmed al-Libi's death, though he declined to go into details about the circumstances in which the al-Qaida leader died. U.S. officials who earlier confirmed al-Libi's death said he was killed in a drone strike in northwestern Pakistan.
Carney said al-Libi served as a "general manager" for al-Qaida and had a role in managing regional affiliates. His elimination, Carney said, is another major blow against the terrorist organization.
