Yemen has sent thousands of security forces to take part in a campaign against what they say al Qaeda in three provinces, and authorities have detained five suspected fighters from the group, a security source said on Tuesday.

"The campaign is continuing in the capital and in the provinces of Shabwa and Maarib," the source told Reuters, speaking on customary condition of anonimity.

It is also going on in the southern province of Abyan.
