Al-Awlaki targeted in Yemen

(CNN) - A U.S. military drone fired a missile within the last 48 hours in Yemen aimed at the radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. official told CNN Friday.

The missile was fired at an area in southern Yemen that al-Awlaki is known to have frequented, the official said.

The official said the targeting information was not the result of information gathered from the seizure Monday of materials from Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan.
