American of Yemeni descent, the son of alleged American terrorist Anwar bin Nasser bin Abdulla al-Aulaqi (born 21 April 1971 in Las Cruces, NM). His father Anwar was killed in a CIA drone strike in Yemen on 30 September 2011. The 16 year old son Abdulrahman was killed in another CIA drone strike on 14 October 2011, in Yemen, along with alleged al-Qaeda members two weeks after the death of his father. Nine other people were killed in the same CIA-led attack which was ordered by U.S. President Barack Obama. Among the dead was a 17-year-old cousin of Abdulrahman. Family members have said that he was on his way to a barbecue. According to U.S. officials the killing of Abdulrahman al-Awlaki was a mistake; the actual target was an Egyptian, Ibrahim al-Banna. Abdulrahman al-Awlaki was reported to have gone out in the desert to search for his missing father but was sitting in a cafe when he was killed.
Abdulrahman al-Awlaki had no connection to terrorism. Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs stated that the drone killing of Anwar al-Awlaki's son was justified and that the boy "should have [had a] more responsible father," even though Anwar al-Awlaki had been killed in a separate drone strike two weeks prior.
On 29 January 2017, Anwar al-Awlaki's 8-year-old daughter, Nawar al-Awlaki, the half sister of Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, was killed in a commando attack ordered by President Donald Trump.
