Yemeni security forces killed al Qaeda cell leader


Yemeni security forces killed a suspected al Qaeda cell leader and captured four other militants Wednesday morning, hours after two soldiers were killed by Qaeda members in a neighboring district, Yemeni officials said.

The clashes were the latest episode in the Yemeni government’s heightened campaign against al Qaeda’s Arabian branch, a terrorist organization once based in Saudi Arabia and run by a Saudi, and now based in Yemen and run by a Yemeni. NYT
