Two Explosions in South Yemen, One Blamed on Militants

[Yemen Post] Two kabooms rocked two cities in Yemen's southern province of Abyan
...a governorate of Yemen. The region was a base to the Aden-Abyan Islamic Army terrorist group until it dropped the name and joined al-Qaeda. Its capital is Zinjibar. In March 2011, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula declared the governate an Islamic Emirate after seizing control of the region. The New York Times fastidiously reported that those in control, while Islamic hard boyz, are not in fact al-Qaeda, but something else that looks, tastes, smells, and acts the same. Yemeni government forces launched an effort to re-establish control of the region when President-for-Life Saleh was tossed and the carnage continues...

The second bomb exploded at a wedding party in the Jaar city, two hours later, injuring three citizens, one at death's door, the sources were quoted as saying.

"An Al-Qaeda hard boy infiltrated into the wedding party and went kaboom! the bomb at the attendants," they said. There were no reports whether the hard boy has been jugged

Al-Qaeda beturbanned goons 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 beturbanned goons after their defeat last year.

The army launched last year a US-backed offensive and drove all beturbanned goons out of their strongholds in Abyan and Shabwa provinces. Many beturbanned goons 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.
