200 Qaeda Militants Put on Trial in Yemen

 Yemen Post Staff

Yemen is trying and investigating about 200 Al-Qaeda-linked militants and more suspects are about to be investigated and will go on trial soon, the state-run September 26 website reported on Sunday quoting an official familiar with the issue.
The militants included Saudis, Egyptians, Sudanese, Jordanians, Pakistanis, Afghanis, Uzbekistanis, Somalis and others.
Meanwhile, the specialized penal prosecution has received the files of ten more militants who are expected to put on trial soon.
The statement comes amid offensives by the Yemeni army against Al-Qaeda militants in Baidha and Abyan provinces and an ongoing hunt for operatives across the republic.
Tens of militants have been killed and arrested in recent months including key leaders in raids and airstrikes by US drones in various parts of the country.
The US has been providing direct support to the Yemeni forces to target the militants, mainly key leaders wanted by the US administration on terrorist charges and plots.
Separately, a Yemeni soldier has been killed after an exchange of fire with drugs traders in Hajja province in the far north.
Other three soldiers were injured after a patrol clashed with the drugs ring, the website said, adding that more than 100 kg of hashish were seized after the clash.
