FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III vowed Tuesday in Yemen to help that nation battle an Islamist insurgency, Reuters news service reported.

Reuters also reported that a U.S. drone had killed a high level al Qaeda figure in Yemen linked to an attack on a French oil tanker.

Mueller met with President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who took office earlier this year, and  promised the U.S. would support Yemen with full force, Reuters reported.

“Mueller visits Yemen on an annual basis so this is not a special or secret occasion,” said Mohammed Al-Basha, Yemen’s embassy spokesman in Washington, according to Reuters. “President Hadi emphasized that he is strongly committed to combating extremism and working with the U.S. to counter the mutual threat of terrorism.”
