Yemen says captures 3 Qaeda fighters
Yemen said three armed al Qaeda fighters were captured in Yemen, according to a Yemeni security source.
Yemen said three armed al Qaeda fighters were captured in Yemen early Saturday, close to the Saudi Arabian border, according to a Yemeni security source.
The fighters had weapons, explosives and leaflets with them, the source said, asking not to be named.
On Friday, Yemen claimed killed 6 al Qaeda members in an air strike in northern Yemen in a stepped-up government campaign.
Yemen stepped up its operations against al Qaeda after a Yemen-based wing of the group said it was behind an attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound U.S. airliner on Dec. 25.
