US-Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi has called for the killing of Americans 'without hesitation,' in a video message posted on jihadist websites, US monitoring group SITE said on Monday. "Do not consult anyone in killing Americans," Awlaqi said in the 23-minute video. "Killing the devil does not need any fatwa," he added. "It's either us or you," Awlaqi said, addressing Americans in the video.
The cleric was charged last Tuesday in Yemen over alleged ties with Al-Qaeda. He is wanted by the USA and likely hiding in Yemen. Tribal sources in the country claim al-Awlaqi went underground about four months ago.
