Yemen: Two al Qaeda activists shot dead
Yemeni security forces on Sunday killed an al-Qaeda suspect who was convicted of an attack on a French oil tanker and escaped from prison earlier this year, security officials said.
Fawaz Yahya al-Rabeei was killed after anti-terrorism troops raided a house in the capital, Sana'a, acting on a tip. Another suspected al-Qaeda member, Mohammed al-Dailami, also shot dead in the raid, while one soldier was wounded, the officials said, according to the AP. Another person was detained, SABA news agency added.
Al-Rabeei and al-Dailami were among 22 convicts who escaped from prison in February 2006.
