Sanaa (Yemen)-A Yemeni state security court 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 Mouhsse in 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.
