Yemen president: Fight against al Qaeda to continue
Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh said Sunday he is determined to fight al-Qaeda. In his speech to mark the anniversary of the 1962 revolution, the Yemeni leader stated: "We are committed to the war on terror... which has harmed our economy, the reputation of our religion and country."
"Al-Qaeda elements... have attacked the interests of our people and our homeland... hindered the development and affected tourism and investment in our country," said Saleh.
"We have no choice but to face their danger and overcome it by all means," he added.
