The U.S. takes out one of the world's top terrorists.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Golloher reports:

It's the harshest blow to al Qaeda since the death of Usama bin Laden. Nasir al Wahishi, the leader of the group in Yemen, and the No. 2 in command of all of al Qaeda's insurgents, was killed in a U.S. drone strike last week.

The group confirming al Wahishi's death, in a video statement, calling him a Muslim hero and vowing to continue the war against America.

Al Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen is seen as the most dangerous. It has been linked to a number of foiled attacks on American soil.
