FM: Media exaggerating about al Qaeda in Yemen
Yemen is hunting some 400 al Qaeda suspects including Yemenis and Saudis, the country's Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al Qirbi said on Sunday. "After the recent terror operations seen as devastating blows to al Qaeda, we can describe the situation as stable in the country because the security authorities are tracking all suspects and criminal gangs, killing, wounding and arresting many of them," he said comments to al Hayat newspaper.
"Unfortunately, media is exaggerating about al Qaeda and the situation in Yemen, picturing al Qaeda as a factor destabilizing the country and striking security and development," he said.
Speaking about the upcoming 20th Gulf Football Cup set to be held in Aden and Abyan from November 22 to December 5, Al-Qirbi said Yemen is determined to host these games and it assures all Gulf countries the situation is stable and Yemen can secure it.
