Al-Qaeda Yemeni Leader Warns Of Future Attacks

The leader of Al-Qaeda's Yemeni offshoot has warned Americans that they face bloodier attacks after the killing of Al-Qaeda's leader Osama bin Laden by U.S. special forces on May 2 in Pakistan.

The warning by Nasser al-Wahishi, the head of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and once a close associate of bin Laden, was posted on Islamist extremist websites.

According to the SITE monitoring group, which monitors militant messages, Wahishi warned Americans not to fool themselves that "the matter will be over" with bin Laden's death and said that "what is coming is greater and worse."

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is one of the most active affiliates of the terrorist network.
