Two Yemenis were executed by Al Qaeda for charges of spying for American, Saudi and Yemeni intelligence, said local residents Sunday.
The Taliban-style executions took place in two different towns controlled by Al Qaeda south of Yemen in presence of hundreds of local people and Al Qaeda operatives.
Al Qaeda-declared judge was reading the verdict against the Yemeni Ramzi Mohammed Al Areeki, 30, early morning Sunday February 12,2012, in the same place where American drones killed the 16-year old son of the American-Yemeni slain extremist cleric Anwar Al Awlaki, in Azzan, Shabwa, south of Yemen.
Families of the victims of that drone attack which happened last October,were among the sympathizers and local residents who were chanting " Allahu Akabar, Allahu Akbar" as Al Areeki was being beheaded by the sword, in Mafrak Azzan, in Shabwa.
For the second, the 28-year old Yemeni, Saleh Ahmed Saleh Al Jamily, was executed and crucified close to Khanfar Stadium, Jaar, the southern province of Abyan.
In the two Al Qaeda-held towns,the militants distributed to local residents hundreds of copies of what they called confessions from the two executed Yemenis.
According to that confessions, Al Areeki said that two Saudi intelligence officials had recruited him to spy on Al Qaeda movements and activities in Yemen.
Hussein Bin Saad Al Kahtani, and Ibrahim Sulaiman Al Dailami met him in the Saudi city of Abha and agreed with him to work as a spy in return for money.
Al Areeki was the agent who sent the information about the son of Anwar Al Awlaki, Abdul Rehman, and a number of Al Qaeda operatives, who were in Mafrak Azzan last October before US drone killed them.
And for the second executed in Jaar, Al Jamily, he said in the confessions that the Yemeni intelligence officer Mueed Nasser Abdullah recruited him to collect information about nine Al Qaeda operatives including three prominent leaders who were killed by US drones in Zinjubar Abyan and Mareb.
He gave the information that led to the killing of Ali Bin Saeed Bin Jamil, and Abu Osama Ali Mubarak Feras in Zinjubar late last year.
Jamil from Abida tribe of Marib province, and Feras from Jehm tribe from the same province.
Al Jamily, who is originally from Mareb, also said he was behind the killing of seven other Al Qaeda militants from Mareb over the last few years.
Earlier this month, in Zinjubar, Al Qaeda executed a third man called Abu Eisa Hassan Naji Al Nakeeb, who was the money man for the two executed agents.
Al Qaeda threatened to do the same thing to any one who would give information about them to " the enemies of Allah".
Al Qaeda also declared names of three men who, as they said, still work with the Yemeni and American intelligence.
