Yemen Forces Arrest Suspected Terrorists

Yemeni security forces arrested four alleged members of an al-Qaida-linked militant group suspected in an attack on a military medical convoy, an official said Sunday. The detainees allegedly belong to the outlawed Aden-Abyan Islamic Army, a group formed by Arab and Yemeni fighters who fought to oust the Soviet Union from Afghanistan in 1989. Authorities blame the group for the June 21 attack on the Yemeni convoy in the country’s south. The attack left seven Yemeni soldiers wounded. The security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said security forces detained the four men during the past week in the city of Abyan, bringing to 32 the number of militants arrested since an offensive was launched on the group’s mountain hideout near Hatat, some 280 miles south of the capital, San’a.
