10 Yemen soldiers hurt in raid to nab Qaeda militant

10 Yemeni soldiers were wounded in clashes on Wednesday with Qaeda suspects as they tried to nab a militant leader over last week`s murder of a top officer.



Sanaa: 10 Yemeni soldiers were wounded in
clashes on Wednesday with Al-Qaeda suspects as they tried to arrest a
militant leader over last week`s murder of a top officer,
tribal and medical sources said.

The troops raided the home of Hassan Abdullah Saleh
al-Uqaily in Al-Himma, east of the capital Sanaa, in an
attempt to arrest him, a tribal source said.

The suspect was not at home and clashes broke out with a
group of his supporters during which 10 soldiers were wounded,
a medical official said.

Colonel Mohammed Saleh al-Shaief and two of his
bodyguards were killed on Saturday when Al-Qaeda militants
opened fire on their convoy south of the eastern city of
Marib, military and tribal sources said.

A local source identified Uqaily, a 28-year-old on a
government wanted list as the one who led the attack.

Marib is one of the strongholds of Al-Qaeda in Yemen,
ancestral homeland of its leader Osama bin Laden.
