When 72 virgins isn't enough...
The terrorist group Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has put a reward to whoever should assasinate the American Ambassador to Yemen in the form of slightly more than six and a half pounds of gold, as reported by the news portal TheNewAmerican.com on Jan. 4, 2013.
American Ambassador to Sana'a, Gerald Feierstein now has a bounty on his head worth up to $160,000 (£260,048) according to an audio tape released by the terrorists.
As cited by SITE Intelligence Group, AQAP claims the bounties were offered:
"To encourage our Muslim Ummah (nation) and to expand the circle of the jihad by the masses."
The Arabian branch office of the Al-Qaeda organization world-wide, ADAP is also offering a standing reward of 5 million Yemeni Rials ($23,350/£37,951) for each American Serviceman killed in Yemen.
In a 2010 report from ABC News, unemployment in Yemen stands at 50 percent.
And of those "lucky enough" to actually have a job, yearly income in the Arabian nation is no more than $900 (£554).
