 US officials say another top al-Qaeda leader has been killed in Pakistan by a drone strike. The man known as Abu Yahya Al-Libi was considered the No.2 al-Qaeda leader and a former top associate to Usama bin1 Laden2. NPR’s Tom Gjelten says the killing3, if verified, could be the biggest blow to al-Qaeda since the death of bin Laden over a year ago.

Abu Yahya Al-Libi or the Libyan was famous in jihadist(伊斯兰圣战士) circles for having escaped from a US military prison in Afghanistan in 2005. He and three other suspected al-Qaeda members picked a lock, crawled over a wall, and made off in a getaway vehicle. Abu Yahya later became known both for his theological writings and his military leadership. He was a top US target. A US official, confirming his death in a drone strike, said Abu Yahya oversaw4 al-Qaeda’s operations against the west. He was widely considered to be the No.2 in al-Qaeda behind Ayman al-Zawahiri, who took over after Usama bin Laden was killed. The US official says no one in al-Qaeda even comes close to Abu Yahya in terms of his expertise5. Tom Gjelten, NPR news, Washington.

The Flame spyware that infect computers across the Mideast exploited a security flaw in Microsoft window operating system. NPR’s Steve Han reports the flaw open millions of computers around the world to potential attacks.
The Flame virus enabled its creators to lock a key district, turn on and turn off microphones and suck down nearly any information passing through an infected machine. It is so ambitious, many security experts assume it was created by a government agency intent on spying. Because it was discovered in computers in Iran, suspicion has focused on the US and Israel. Over the weekend, Microsoft announced the vulnerability that allowed the virus to infect its targets was wide spread. Its creators discover a way to trick computers into believing that a malicious19 program was in fact created by Microsoft. Microsoft has now fixed20 up that bug21. Steve Han, NPR news, *.
