Yemen: 5 people linked to Al-Qaeda arrested

Yemeni security forces have arrested five people accused of harboring suspected al-Qaeda terrorists during sweep operations in Abyan province in the south of Yemen.
The raid took place on Saturday night in the town of Lawder — 250 km (155 miles) southeast of the capital, Sana’a — where government troops have been battling al-Qaeda elements for weeks, the state-run Sep26.net website reported.
Yemeni troops are combing Lawdar and the surrounding areas in search of the remaining al-Qaeda elements who have fled the city. The Yemeni Interior Ministry has announced that terrorist elements are being tracked down round the clock and exposed to attacks wherever they appear.

It’s always good to arrest AQ-linked guys but it’s not enough. Till Jihadist ideolody is not fought, this would mean nothing really.
