Yemeni president vows relentless fight against militants
The Yemeni president vowed on Monday a relentless fight against al Qaeda insurgents who killed 14 soldiers last week, as the army dispatched troops and warplanes to try and track down the militants. "Our battle with the forces of evil, terrorism, treachery, betrayal and sabotage is a fateful one," Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi said in remarks reported by state news agency Saba. Yemen was shocked by the deaths last Friday of the 14 soldiers, who were traveling home from eastern Yemen on family leave when militants stopped their bus, seized them at gunpoint and executed them. Ansar al Sharia, an affiliate of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), said it carried out the killings in revenge for military operations against the group.
