Five civilians killed as Yemen battles 'Qaeda'

Yemeni soldiers take position behind a trench during an offensive against Al-Qaeda extremists in the southern province of Shabwa, on May 7, 2014A shell smashed into a vehicle and killed five civilians on Thursday during clashes between Yemen’s army and Al-Qaeda suspects in the country’s restive south, witnesses said. The incident occurred near Al-Saeed, an Al-Qaeda stronghold in Shabwa province, destroying the vehicle and killing all five people on board, the same sources said. They identified the victims as members of the powerful Shabwa-based Awaliq tribe, from which US-born Al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi, killed in a US air strike in September 2011, hails. “Al-Qaeda elements wanted to attack an army vehicle but their shells hit a civilian car,” he told AFP.
