    (ANSAmed) - ROME, FEBRUARY 6 - A ''US drone'' has killed the spiritual leader of the Yemeni-Saudi branch of Al Qaida (AQAP), which on January 9 claimed the deadly attack on the office of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, AQAP said in a statement quoted by international media on Friday.

    Harith bin Ghazi al-Nadhari and three other jihadists ''were killed on January 31'' in Yemen, according to the statement.

    Al-Nadhari had also spoken against the 'caliph' al Baghdadi, accused of ''digging a groove'' among jihadist groups. (ANSAmed)
