Yemen court sentences alleged 5 al Qaeda militants
Question of the Day
SANNA, Yemen (AP) — Yemen‘s state security court on Sunday sentenced five alleged al Qaeda militants to up to 10 years in prison for carrying out attacks against security forces and supporting the group logistically in the southern province of Abyan in 2011.
The court gave the defendants sentences ranging from four to 10 years. It was not immediately clear how many would serve the maximum sentence.
The court ordered the release of six others who already had spent about 18 months in detention. They were found guilty of supporting al Qaeda but not direct involvement in attacks. They will be under government monitoring after their release.
Journalists were in the courtroom.
Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi has ordered trials for dozens of al Qaeda suspects held without charges for more than a year.
