18 August 2005: "Saudi security forces have killed a man in Medina they said was the leader of al Qaeda on the Arab Peninsula, an interior ministry official told CNN."

"Riyadh suggested Oufi died last year (2004) in a similar shootout."

It was reported in June 2004 that al-Oufi, a former Saudi police officer, had taken over as leader of Al-Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula after the previous three incumbents had reportedly died.
