Al-Qaida announced Monday that its No. 3 official, Mustafa al-Yazid, had been killed along with members of his family - perhaps one of the most severe blows to the terror movement since the U.S. campaign against al-Qaida began. A U.S. official said al-Yazid was believed to have died in a U.S. missile strike.
