Yemen: At Least 13 Militants Killed

At least 13 militants linked to al Qaeda were killed in southern and central Yemen, tribal and official sources said Jan. 20, Reuters reported. Three of the 13 were killed in an unmanned aerial vehicle strike, causing angry tribesmen to block one of the region's main roads in protest, while the remaining 10 were killed in an explosion in a house where bombs were being made. Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has taken advantage of the Yemeni government's structural weakness and the country's instability to seize control of territory in the region.
