LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The still unidentified man was shot in the head by an Al Qaeda militant firing squad, he then had his hands tied to a soccer goal post with an Islamic flag tied to one post, in a pose reminiscent of Christ's crucifixion, and displayed for the public, Yemeni authorities said.

Fliers distributed throughout the town by the terrorist organization claimed that the man was executed for aiding the US. Specifically, it was claimed that the man was putting microchips into cars and safe houses used by Al Qaeda members in order to help guide US drone missile strikes.

Father, Forgive Them

This is not the first time such barbaric acts of crucifixion have taken place in that region of southern Yemen, where government authority is nearly non-existent and Muslim extremist groups have the run of the land.

In February 2012, Saleh Ahmed Saleh Al-Jamely was convicted of similar activities by an Islamic court and then crucified and left for display after two cars were hit by US drone strikes.

On March 2 security officials were ambushed by Islamic gunmen in central Yemen, and a colonel was killed.

That same day armed tribesmen engaged security forces. Three Yemeni soldiers were wounded and two of the tribesmen were killed.

Yemen is the main Al Qaeda base of operations on the Arabian peninsula and site of numerous Islamic terrorist organizations. Ansar al-Shari'a, which is a Yemeni offshoot of Al Qaeda, is also headquartered there.

The CIA labeled Ansar al-Shari'a "the most dangerous node in the global jihad."
