Yemenis protest against Al-Qaeda

World Bulletin / News Desk 

Hundreds of Yemenis on Saturday staged a protest in Al-Mukalla, a city of the southern province of Hadhramaut, against the presence of Al-Qaeda-affiliated groups in the city.

The demonstrators, who toured some of the streets of the city, chanted slogans against the presence of armed groups from the Qaeda-linked Ansar Al-Sharia group in the city.

They accused them of looting shops and terrorizing residents, saying the militants were no longer welcome in the city.

Ansar Al-Sharia overran Al-Mukalla on April 2. When they overran the city, Ansar Al-Sharia members seized arms and sites left behind by the Yemeni army.

This was the second protest to be held in Hadhramaut against Al-Qaeda.
