By Yara Bayoumy SANAA (Reuters) - Schoolboy Mohammed Taeiman died this week on a remote Yemeni road, a casualty of a U.S. drone campaign against the local branch of al Qaeda that seems to be sliding into disarray. The sixth-grader's death as he returned home with a family friend aroused the kind of anger that has long helped Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) to recruit fighters. While the exact circumstances of Monday's incident remain unclear, relatives say the boy was traveling in a car with the family friend, Abdullah al-Zindani, to his village in the central province of Marib. Returning from visiting an acquaintance in southern Yemen, they were driving along a 160 km (100 mile) road that threads its way between mountains and desert.
