A Yemeni man pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiring to kill Americans abroad by working with Al-Qaeda to attack U.S. military and coalition forces in Afghanistan."From 2007 up to 2009, I agreed with others to join Al-Qaeda and participate in the fight against American forces," al-Hamidi said in court.His plea came seven months after another Yemeni man also charged in the case, Saddiq al-Abbadi, likewise pleaded guilty. During that time, al-Abbadi led a battle against U.S. forces in Afghanistan's Paktia province in May 2008 during which one U.S. Army Ranger was killed and several others were seriously wounded, prosecutors said.
