Another workplace accident. What a shame.
Three Al Qaeda operatives accidentally blew themselves up while outfitting a car with explosives, Yemen security officials said.
Tribesmen from the area and security officials identified the three, one Saudi and two Yemenis, as Al Qaeda terrorists.
The group is known to be active in the province’s Habban region, where the explosion took place Sunday.
The U.S considers Yemen’s Al Qaeda branch, also called Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, to be the network’s most dangerous offshoot. The group seized much of the south after Yemen’s 2011 uprisings.
