Yemen releases names of 25 al-Qaida figures

  • Yemen released the names of 25 wanted al-Qaida suspects saying that these men were planning attacks across the country targeting foreign officials and organizations. 

    Yemen's al-Qaida branch is considered to be one of the most dangerous affiliates of the terror network and some top figures in the branch were named. 

    According to the statement, security forces are willing to pay $23,000 to anyone who comes forward with information regarding any of these men, which might lead to their arrests. 

    This information came as the U.S. embassies closed through the week due to a serious al-Qaida threat.
