Published:
Tribesmen from the area and security officials identified the three, one Saudi and two Yemenis, as al-Qaida members. The group is known to be active in the province’s Habban region, where the explosion took place Sunday.
The U.S considers Yemen’s al-Qaida branch, also called al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, to be the network’s most dangerous offshoot. The group seized much of the south after Yemen’s 2011 uprisings. A U.S.-backed military offensive later drove militants out of cities and towns, but they continue to stage attacks.
