Yemen nabs five Qaeda suspects
Yemen has arrested five men suspected of belonging to Osama bin Laden's Islamic militant al Qaeda network, a state-run Yemeni newspaper reports. The weekly September 26 newspaper quoted security sources as saying the five were detained on Friday. "The latest members of the network arrested are five people with documents explaining how to make explosives and use weapons in addition to tapes and other documentation of eight money transfers from a commercial bank in an Arab-African state," one source told the newspaper without naming the country. The newspaper said security forces had arrested 11 suspected al Qaeda members in September.
