Yemen Intelligence Hunts Qaeda Car Bombs
[Yemen Post] Yemeni intelligence authorities have launched a massive hunt for a number of explosives-laden cars that were prepared by Al-Qaeda gunnies to attack key installations in key cities, Alahale reported quoting a statement by official sources on Sunday.

"The intelligence authorities have got information about the boom-mobiles and are not searching for them in Sanaa and other main cities," the sources were quoted as saying.

The boom-mobiles come a week ahead of an extraordinary meeting of the United Nations

Security Council which will be held in the capital Sanaa on January 28.

In the meantime, the Yemeni government is continuing a campaign to control the situation before the meeting with large forces and patrols dispatched to all streets.

After mass protests in late 2011,the UN issued resolutions to back the GCC-brokered power-transfer deal in Yemen and has since held several meetings on the transition.

Yemen has been hunting Al-Qaeda operatives killing many and targeting their hideouts with direct support from the US whose drones have killed key AQAP leaders since last year.
