Al Qaeda: $160,000 For The Killing Of A U.S. Diplomat, $23,000 For A Soldier
Al Qaeda is offering a bounty for the heads of U.S. soldiers or of U.S. Ambassador to Yemen, Gerald Feierstein.
An audio produced by the group’s media arm, the al-Malahem Foundation, and posted on militant websites Saturday said it offered three kilograms of gold, worth $160,000, for killing the ambassador.
The group said it will pay 5 million Yemeni riyals ($23,000) to anyone who kills an American soldier inside Yemen.
It did not say how the bounty could be collected, but said the offer is valid for six months.
