Slow, wasting? New York Post:

Muhammad al Hanq died from illness on March 4, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) announced in a communique issued on jihadist forums and picked up by the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors extremist websites.

Hanq was reported killed in January 2010, when his threats forced the closure of foreign embassies in Sanaa, but it later emerged that the regional al Qaeda commander survived a clash in his Arhab region, outside the capital.
