A Yemeni security official says forces have stormed an al-Qaida hide-out in the country’s west, setting off clashes.
A government statement confirmed the clashes and said at least one suspected al-Qaida member was arrested.
The fighting took place in Hudaydah province, a principle al-Qaida stronghold. It was home to most of the attackers who struck outside the U.S. Embassy in 2008, killing 10 Yemeni guards and four civilians.
