Al-Qaeda suspect captured in Ibb
[Yemen Post] The Yemeni authorities captured during the few past days an Al-Qaeda suspect in the central governorate of Ibb , security sources have affirmed.

The sources told the military-run 26 September that the suspect was captured in the framework of a hunt campaign conducted by security forces against al-Qaeda terrorists.

They spelt out that the suspect fought with Al-Qaeda in Zinjibar and Jaar of Abyan
...a governorate of Yemen. The region was a base to the Aden-Abyan Islamic Army terrorist group until it dropped the name and joined al-Qaeda. Its capital is Zinjibar. In March 2011, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula declared the governate an Islamic Emirate after seizing control of the region. The New York Times fastidiously reported that those in control, while Islamic hard boyz, are not in fact al-Qaeda, but something else that looks, tastes, smells, and acts the same. Yemeni government forces launched an effort to re-establish control of the region when President-for-Life Saleh was tossed and the carnage continues...

Don't shoot, coppers! I'm comin' out!
a number of Al-Qaeda operatives in different Yemeni areas including the capital Sana'a. Local sources of Abyan said that the Popular Resistance Committees, that backed the offensive of the Yemeni army in Abyan and other southern governorates, are conducting a hunt campaign against Al-Qaeda beturbanned goons in the wake of targeting its leaders.

In response to attacks carried out by Al-Qaeda against leaders and fighters of the Popular Resistance Committees, the fighters pledged to continue fighting Al-Qaeda beturbanned goons until eliminating them completely.Al-Qaeda restored to use other tactics as it assassinated a number of Yemeni military commanders and officers, and carried out suicide kabooms against military and security compounds in the capital Sana'a and other cities.After the Yemeni government announced its victory in early June, al-Qaeda carried out a suicide kaboom various governorates and killed the commander of Yemen's southern military region, Salem Qatan.

The Yemeni authorities had stated that they would continue the battle against Al-Qaeda beturbanned goons and that the government will deal with them as citizens in case they were persuaded to abandon violence.
