Yemeni forces on Saturday captured an al Qaeda militant wearing an explosive belt who was planning a suicide attack on “economic facilities,” a government official said.
The man was detained while driving a motorbike in the Khalf area in the Hadramaut region, the Ministry of Interior official said in a statement sent to Reuters. He was named as Saleh Abdul-Habib Saleh Shawash.
“The primary interrogation of this terrorist (revealed) he was planning a suicide attack against economic facilities in Hadramaut … the interrogation is ongoing to reveal more information about this and to see who else might be involved in the plan,” the source said. Reuters
