'Al-Qaeda leader killed' in Saudi

Big fish, hope it proves accurate.

A man suspected of being al-Qaeda's leader in Saudi Arabia is reported to have been killed in a police raid.

According to unconfirmed reports, Saleh Awfi was killed during a shootout in the holy city of Medina.

He is one of the most wanted men in Saudi Arabia, which has been trying to quell a wave of violence by militants believed to be linked to al-Qaeda.
