Sana`a: A Yemeni state security court on Saturday ordered the "forcible arrest" of US-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi, wanted by the US dead or alive for links to al Qaeda.
The order was issued by the court`s presiding judge Mouhssein Alwan during the second hearing in the trial in absentia of al-Awlaqi who is charged with inciting the killing of foreigners.
Awlaqi is believed to be hiding in a tribal area in the southern Yemeni province of Shabwa.
