Yemen Exploits al-Qaeda to Get More Money from U.S.
December 29, 2009
[efoods]Yemen has said it is not getting enough support from the West to tackle al-Qaeda, as details emerge of the suspected US jet bomber’s time there.
Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al-Qirbi told the BBC that Yemen had the will and ability to deal with al-Qaeda, but was undermined by a lack of support.
He estimated that several hundred al-Qaeda members were operating in Yemen and could be planning more attacks.
A Yemen-based branch of the network has claimed it planned the failed attack.
Yemeni officials said Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, the Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up the Detroit-bound jet on Christmas Day, was living in Yemen from August until the beginning of December, the official Saba news agency reported.
