Three key Al-Qaeda leaders were killed early on Tuesday when the Yemeni forces raided their house in the port city of Aden, the September 26 website reported.
The forces raided the hideout in the Rimi quarter in the Mansoura town at down and clashed and killed the three leaders, it said, adding that four troops were injured, one in serious condition.
Explosives, missiles, explosive-laden gas cylinders and cars were seized inside the rooms and yard of the house, the website said.
"The house was the place where Al-Qaeda leaders met to plan and manage terrorist operations and also was as a workshop to produce explosives and prepare explosive-laden cars," it said.
Furthermore, the authorities seized maps and a computer including information about plans of militants to carry out attacks against military and security chiefs as well as key installations, it said, pointing out the raid occurred after arresting a militant who led the authorities to the hideout.
Separately, the appeals court in the capital Sanaa sentenced two Al-Qaeda members to death and ruled to display their bodies in public after convicting them of forming an armed group that committed crimes including targeting military and security chiefs, personnel, convoys, cars and offices as well as public offices.

On the same day last year, the convicts and other Al-Qaeda militants killed another two soldiers and injured six others.
The court also said the two resisted the authorities while hunting them exposing the public security to danger.
