Al Qaeda militants kill Yemeni soldier in southern Yemen - official

Al Qaeda militants attacked a military checkpoint in southern Yemen on Monday, killing a soldier and wounding two others, a local official told Reuters. The gunbattle occurred on the outskirts of Mahfad in Yemen province, where government forces have for years battled Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the local branch of the Islamic militant group. Yemen and its military has been thrown into disarray by unrest following the Arab Spring uprisings in 2011 and the takeover of the capital Sana’a by the Houthis, a Shi’ite Muslim militia, in September. American officials fear Al Qaeda will gain strength in the ensuing power vacuum, allowing it to launch more attacks against the West like the deadly shootings in Paris on Jan 7.
