Saudi government kills top Al Qaeda leader

The Saudis have killed a man in Medina they say was the leader of Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula.

The man identified as Saleh Al Oufi was on a Saudi list of 26 most wanted people. The Saudis have since issued a new list with 36 names, but Oufi's death on Thursday would leave one person on the original list still free.

I'm not crazy about the Saudi government but anytime an Al Qaeda leader dies it is a good thing.
