The Usual Suspects: Yemen Says It Has Individuals Linked to Belgian Shooting

Yemen is saying they have some suspects in the Belgian shooting. There were reports that they rounded up a number of people just after the event occurred, but there was no word that they actually had someone who knew anything. The article from Hadhramout Press says that Yemeni authorities announce the capture of four suspects from “takfiri” extremist groups which it called “a clear reference to al Qaeda.” The government has a history of blaming things on al Qaeda when they think it suits them – which should be kept in mind.

Yemen says holding suspects in Belgians’ killing

SANAA, Jan 21 (Reuters) – Yemen said on Monday it had identified the suspected killers of two Belgian tourists and their Yemeni drivers among dozens of al Qaeda suspects rounded up since the attack.

“Among those who were arrested in the past few days, four are believed be the attackers,” a security official told Reuters.

Friday’s attack came less than a week after al Qaeda’s wing in Yemen vowed to carry out unspecified operations to win the release of jailed Islamic militants. (Reporting by Mohammed Sudam, writing by Firouz Sedarat)
