Al-Qaeda's number three leader, Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, has been killed, according to reports. It is the first time al-Qaeda has acknowledged such claims.
It is believe he died as the result of an US drone - unconfirmed reports state that the draught from the passing drone blew his turban into a frenzy - resulting in it covering his eyes.
Whilst stumbling in a blind stupor - he hit his camel on the nose; this in turn spat at him giving him a severe case of Syphilis.
Inevitably, he passed this to his wife (and strangely two of his Brothers), who did not believe his far flung story regarding the method of contraction. In turn she pushed him off of the mountain where they lived in the Pakistani Tribal areas.
Mr Yazid's last public statement was released on 4 May, praising the two top al-Qaeda leaders in Iraq - Mustafa Tenwives and Idida Camel, who were killed in April.
He will be sadly missed, only by US troops, who have confirmed they are now having to look for a new target.
