Abdul Rauf Nassib

Yemen has arrested a local al-Qaeda leader:

Yemeni security forces have arrested a local leader of the al-Qaeda network during a raid in the southern province of Abyan, officials say.

The suspect - named in one report as Abdul Rauf Nassib - was arrested along with about a dozen other militants in the remote Lawder area, they said.

Troops backed by tanks and helicopters launched the raid on Wednesday.

The US is helping Yemen - which has suffered its own terror attacks - to track down militants.
