Yemen army kills 3 Qaeda suspects near capital

A Yemeni army helicopter flies over the district of Arhab in the Sanaa province on December 17, 2009Yemeni troops launched a ground assault Sunday against Al-Qaeda suspects who fled an army offensive in the south to a district near the capital, killing three jihadists, sources said. “Yemen’s anti-terrorism forces carried out a military operation in Arhab,” 35 kilometres (20 miles) from Sanaa, “killing three Al-Qaeda militants and arresting four others,” a security official told AFP. Tribal sources in the region said the army had closed access to Arhab on Sunday as it continued to target militants. The militants, who included foreigners, returned to Yemen and were in the southern Al-Qaeda bastions of Shabwa and Abyan before an army offensive that was launched on April 29 drove them to Arhab, according to the tribal sources.
