Two Explosions in South Yemen, One Blamed on Militants

 Yemen Post Staff

Two explosions rocked two cities in Yemen’s southern province of Abyan on Tuesday and there were
reports three people were wounded, Almasdar Online reported.

The first bomb was detonated at a position of the pro-government tribal fighters (the popular fight
committees) in the old city of Modya but no casualties were reported in that explosion, the website
quoted local sources as saying. “The explosion took place before fighters arrived at the site,” they
added.

The second bomb was detonated at a wedding party in the Jaar city, two hours later, injuring three
citizens, one in critical condition, the sources were quoted as saying.

“An Al-Qaeda militant infiltrated into the wedding party and exploded the bomb at the attendants,”
they said. There were no reports whether the militant has been arrested or was among those hurt.

Al-Qaeda militants have been targeting the tribal fighters who spread in almost all Abyan cities on
patrols and at checkpoints to prevent the regrouping and return of the militants after their defeat last
year.

The army launched last year a US-backed offensive and drove all militants out of their strongholds in
Abyan and Shabwa provinces. Many militants including key leaders were killed.

Meanwhile, the authorities have been continuing a massive hunt for the remaining operatives of Al-
Qaeda with direct support from the US whose drones have targeted key Al-Qaeda leaders and members.
