Al-Qaeda’s branch in Yemen announced the death of its leader, Khaled Batarfi, but did not clarify the circumstances of his death.

A video clip published by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula showed the body of Khaled Batarfi wrapped in a shroud and the organization’s flag.

The statement read by a senior official did not indicate how he died, but used wording that did not suggest that he was killed like his predecessor.

Batarfi, a Saudi citizen in his 40s, became the leader of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in 2020.
