Jamel Ahmed Mohammed Ali Al-Badawi was struck Tuesday during a joint U.S. military and intelligence operation while driving alone in a vehicle in Yemen's Ma'rib Governorate, a U.S. administration official told CNN.

The offensive maneuver was carried out in the Marib Governate, Yemen, and directed at Jamal al-Badawi, Capt. Bill Urban, U.S. Central Command spokesman, said in a statement.

The FBI had placed Badawi on its most wanted list, offering a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture.

"We are aware of reports that Jamal al-Badawi was killed in a strike in Yemen", Urban said. The New York Times reported that he helped Yemeni authorities track down five other wanted al-Qaeda operatives.

A USA airstrike in western Yemen may have killed one of the men suspected of coordinating a terror bombing on the USS Cole in 2000 that killed 17 US sailors, Defense officials said Friday. Al-Qaeda's top regional official and overall second-in-command, Nasser al-Wuhayshi, was taken out by a drone in 2015.

One of the masterminds behind a deadly attack on a US warship in Yemen more than 18 years ago was killed in that country earlier this week, according to a report published Friday.

He was reportedly among those who orchestrated the attack on USS Cole in Yemen on October 12, 2000, which killed 17 people and wounded a further 39.

The bombing of the USS Cole, an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, occurred while the warship was refueling at the harbor of Aden.

Al-Qaida claimed responsibility.

A federal grand jury indicted Badawi on 50 counts in 2003 for the bombing. However, he escaped from a Yemeni prison in April 2003, was recaptured in March 2004 and again escaped in February 2006.
