Recent reports on the killing of Al Qaeda in Yemen’s second in command man Saeed Al-Shehri has led to more ambiguity surrounding the return of his wife, Wafa Al-Shehri, the most wanted Saudi woman whose name was removed from the recent Interpol’s Red Notice.
Wafa Al-Shehri and her children from three different husbands fled to Yemen in 2009. The name of another Saudi woman, Noura Al-Enizi, 43, appeared in the list. Saudis wanted for various crimes by Saudi Arabia and the United States have increased to 78.
Ministry of Interior spokesman Maj. Gen. Mansour Al-Turki said the Al-Shehri’s name was no longer in the list because security authorities know her whereabouts in Yemen and are coordinating with the authorities there in that regard.
Al-Shehri, Wafa’s third husband and who is number 36 in the Saudi most wanted list of 85 persons, returned to his extremist ideology and allegedly resumed terrorist activities after he had gone through a rehabilitation program at Prince Muhammad bin Naif Center for Counseling and Care. He had been sent to the Kingdom from the American-run Guantanamo detention Camp in 2007 following his arrest in Afghanistan.
Wafa had fled to Yemen to join her husband. Her first husband, Saud Al-Qahtani, had filed a case against her accusing her of kidnapping their son Yusuf.
The father of her daughter Sayif, her second husband Abdul Rahman Al-Ghamdi, was killed in an encounter with security forces in Taif. His family has requested the authorities to have the girl brought home.
