A Yemeni government official says they will not extradite radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki to the U.S. if he is captured. According to Kuwati's Kuwait Al-Dar Online newspaper, Foreign Minister Abu-Bakr al-Qirbi says Awlaki is wanted for interrogation by the Yemeni government because of his connection to Fort Hood Shooter Nidal Hasan and the Underwear Bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Yemen refuses to extradite its citizen to other countries.
