    FILE - This Oct. 2008 file photo shows Imam Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike. A public backlash is starting to grow in Yemen over civilians killed by American drones as the U.S. dramatically steps up its strikes against al-Qaida’s branch here the past year. Relatives of those killed say the missile blasts hitting their towns only turn Yemenis against the U.S. campaign to crush militants. The drone strikes have taken out high-level targets in Yemen such as American-born cleric al-Awlaki, believed to have been a powerful tool for al-Qaida’s recruiting in the West. Most, however, appear to target midlevel operatives. (AP Photo/Muhammad ud-Deen, File)

    FILE - This Oct. 2008 file photo shows Imam Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. Al-Awlaki was born in 1971 in New Mexico where his father was studying agriculture as a Fulbright scholar. The son was educated in the United States but left in 2002, eventually returning to Yemen where he became a key figure in the local al-Qaida branch, which U.S. authorities believed was the most dangerous of the al-Qaida franchises. Al-Awlaki's fluent English and articulate speaking style won him a huge following among disaffected young Muslims in the West. He and another American, Samir Khan, who edited al-Qaida's Internet magazine, were killed in a U.S. drone attack in Yemen on Sept. 30, 2011. (AP Photo/Muhammad ud-Deen, File)

Al Qaeda leader Anwar Al-Awlaki personally directed and approved the attempted bombing of a U.S. airliner which a Nigerian man, Abdulmutallab, tried to carry out on Christmas Day in 2009, according to new details released by federal prosecutors on February 10, 2012. Abdulmutallab, 25, is due to be sentenced on Thursday in Detroit and faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty to charges he tried to down a Northwest Airlines jumbo jet with 289 people aboard.

AP provides access to this publicly distributed HANDOUT photo to be used only to illustrate news reporting or commentary on the facts or events depicted in this image. +++ ARCHIV: In this image taken from video and released by SITE Intelligence Group on Monday, Nov. 8, 2010, Anwar al-Awlaki speaks in a video message posted on radical websites. Die Liste der Terroranschlaege, mit denen Anwar al-Awlaki in Verbindung gebracht wird, ist lang: Zwei Attentaeter der Anschlaege des 11. September 2001 sollen seinen Predigten gelauscht haben. Dem als "Unterhosenbomber" bekannt gewordenen Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab soll er die religioese Legitimation fuer seinen letztlich gescheiterten Anschlag auf ein Passagierflugzeug geliefert haben. Mit dem Amokschuetzen Nidal Malik Hasan, der wegen der Ermordung von 13 Menschen auf dem US-Militaerstuetzpunkt Fort Hood angeklagt ist, hatte Awlaki vor dessen Tat regen E-Mail-Verkehr. Zahlreiche weitere Attentaeter wurden von ihm inspiriert. Nun ist Anwar al-Awlaki tot. Wie das jemenitische Verteidigungsministerium am Freitag (30.09.11) mitteilte, starb der 40-jaehrige bei einer Militaeraktion im Jemen, was inzwischen auch von US-Geheimdienstkreisen bestaetigt wurde.
