American Photojournalist Luke Somers who was kidnapped by Al Qaeda operatives in Sanaa capital of Yemen back in September 2013 has been murdered according to latest reports from Associated Press. Lucy Somers the sister of the deceased said “We ask that all of Luke’s family members be allowed to mourn in peace.” After getting constantly hunted down in the Afghan Pak border region by American Drones, for a while Al Qaeda has shifted it base to Yemen and now this country is on the forefront of possible terror strike emanating from its soil.
Just two days back Pentagon spokesperson Rear Adm. John Kirby acknowledged there was an attempt to rescue Luke Somers, however when they reached the spot where they hoped he was being held prisoner, it turned out he was never there. When Luke Somers was held captive his family made several pleas for his release but now it has again come to a sad end with his killing.
