YEMEN
Yemen says authorities have arrested a wanted al-Qaida leader

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 1:38 PM EDT
SANAA, Yemen


Yemen's Interior Ministry says security forces have arrested a leading al-Qaida leader involved in orchestrating abductions of foreigners and looting banks.

The ministry identified the man as Abdel-Rahman Shoueib, aka Abu Musab, saying in a statement Wednesday that he was arrested in Hodeida province. It added that Abu Musab led an attack on a checkpoint that killed two soldiers in April.

In the capital, security officials said that anti-terrorism forces arrested three suspected militants who were allegedly planning an attack. The officials didn't reveal the nature of the plans but said the three were seized from a hotel in Sanaa. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press.

Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula is seen by Washington as al-Qaida's most dangerous offshoot.
