Overview

With the Yemeni government struggling to maintain power in 2011, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula was able to expand and seize portions of southern Yemen. The group is the most active jihadist franchise and has been the most successful in attempted attacks against the U.S. homeland. AQAP's growing ability to use ambushes, roadside improvised explosive devices and sticky bombs as well as its connections to the al Qaeda core indicate the group will likely continue to be a domestic and transnational threat.
