Algo más sobre el atentado contra turistas belgas, extraido del Yemen Observer...
Por cierto, amenazan con repetir lo de la fuga de presos de una cárcel controlada por el P.S.O. en Sana'a, en Febrero de 2006...


Four people were killed, among them two foreign tourists, and others were injured in an attack by anonymous individuals in the area of Do'an valley in Hadhramout governorate today at noon.Official sources have confirmed the death of two female tourists from Belgium and their Yemeni driver. One other Belgian tourist and a second Yemeni national were also injured. Local sources confirmed that the injured Yemeni later died due to severe injuries.

"A group of terrorists opened fire against the Belgian tourists and their Yemeni escorts," said the Governor of Hadhramout, Taha Hajer, adding that local authorities embarked on an immediate investigation of the incident and are tracking the perpetrators.

Local sources said that the terrorists set an ambush for the four cars carrying the Belgian tourists in the route of Ghar Sodan heading to S'ayoon. The sources said that the terrorists started firing at the cars extensively and randomly and then escaped in their Land Cruiser car.

Preliminary investigations indicated that there were four terrorists on the car that escaped and that most of the victims were from the first car of the tourists.

The office director of the interior ministry refused to comment on the attack, and all phones of the leaders of the ministry were off when an attempt to contact them was made by the Yemen Observer.

An official local security source said that security forces had shut down all entrances to the area of the incident in Hadhramout and are carrying out a wide-sweeping search for the attackers with helicopter back-up in order to apprehend those responsible as soon as possible.

Sources in the local council in Do'an said that another helicopter reached the area this afternoon and transferred the bodies of the dead and the injured to the capital.

The local sources expressed their resentment for this attack that is denounced by all Yemenis and is a violation of Islam teachings and morals of Yemenis and that authorities won't rest until the terrorists are brought to justice. The local source added that the terrorists that committed this crime aim to distort and destroy the image of Yemen and harm Yemen's national security and economy.

This attack happened only a few days after a warning was issued by the al-Qaeda organization in Yemen stating that they would free their members held in Yemeni jails and take revenge on the Yemeni government for killing some of them.

Al-Qaeda published a statement on an Islamic website late Saturday night saying, “we won’t calm down or enjoy living until we liberate our brothers from the Yemeni prisons…the blood of Muslims will not go to waste.” The statement was signed by a man identifying himself as Abdul-Aziz.

The website includes a magazine titled “Sada al-Malahim” which quotes “The Prophet (Mohammad)... has ordered that we free detainees” in its first edition. The threat made by al-Qaeda follows a Yemeni refusal to extradite Jamal al-Badawi to the United States after there was a demand made to hand him over to U.S. authorities.

Al-Badawi, who is serving a 15 year jail sentence, is considered to be the number-one suspect in the bombing of the U.S. destroyer USS Cole in Aden in 2000. The Yemeni government said it did not want to extradite al-Badawi or any other Yemeni citizen to the United States or other countries because this would contradict Yemeni law and constitution.

Yemen, in return, has called on the United States to hand over Sheikh Mohammed al-Moaeyed and his companion Mohammed Zayed who were convicted by a U.S. court and have since been serving jail sentences in the U.S. The Yemeni government has requested they complete their sentences in Yemeni prisons.

A group of 23 al-Qaeda prisoners fled a Sana'a jail in February 2006 with the help of extremists. Several of the fugitives were arrested and some were killed, including Fawaz al-Rabeie. The remaining surrendered themselves to the authorities, including Jamal al-Badawi.

Versión del Yemen Times; por cierto, artículo publicado con 4 días de retraso y el atentado no figura como titular más destacado.

Government offers reward for info on Belgians’ assassins


SANA’A, Jan. 20 — The Yemeni government has pledged a 15 million Yemeni Riyal (equivalent to $75,000) reward on Saturday for information leading to the capture of gunmen who fired on a tourist convoy on Friday afternoon in Hadramout governorate, killing two Belgian women and two Yemeni drivers, a senior government official said.

Disclosing the names of the two European victims as Claudine Van Caille and Chlorine Bankole, Hadramout Governor Taha Hajer stated that security authorities are conducting an investigation to identify and bring the tourists’ attackers to justice. “We have shut down all the outlets leading to the area as such may help in cracking down on the escaped murderers,” he clarified.

The area where the attack occurred, near a famous group of ancient multi-story mud dwellings in the town of Shibam, is not considered especially dangerous. There have been kidnappings in the area, but they have subsided in recent years after a government crackdown.

The bodies of the two slain Belgians were flown by military transport to Sana’a Friday night.

According to a Yemeni government statement released Friday after the incident, Al Qaeda might have been responsible for the latest assault. But one government official said that it was not yet clear who was to blame, and added that it was possible the attack was related to recent unrest in the south, where demonstrations by former military officers had spread into a broader anti-government movement and fueled periodic violence.

The Belgian press quoted Slovenia, the current holder of the EU presidency, as saying in a statement, “The EU presidency expresses its sincere condolences to the families of the two Belgian tourists and their Yemeni driver, who were killed in an attack in Wadi Do’an in Yemen’s Hadramout province.”

“The EU presidency strongly condemns all forms of violence and calls on the Yemeni government to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice,” the statement said, adding that this is the second time in little more than six months that European tourists have been attacked and killed by criminals in Yemen

The victims were traveling in a convoy of at least four vehicles through an ancient, ruin-filled desert valley when the gunmen opened fire on them, a security official said. Four people were wounded in the incident.

Karina Lambert, who survived the attack, said it was carried out by four gunmen hiding behind a pickup truck parked by the road.

“They wanted to kill us, that’s sure, because after the first bursts of machine-gun fire, they approached the vehicles and fired into the cars,” she told Belgium’s RTL-TVI television network.

At least 10 suspects have been taken into custody and all roads leading to the governorate have been blocked, said a Yemeni interior ministry official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Belgian Foreign Minister Karel De Gucht identified one victim as Claudine Van Caille, 65. He declined to identify the other immediately after the incident because her family had not yet been informed.

“We don’t have any precise information about the involvement of Islamists, but we have to note that the province of Hadramout is known for its Islamism and its extremist groups,” the Belgian official further added.

He said the Foreign Ministry issued a travel warning singling out the region where the attack took place: “We have indicated very clearly that this is a risky venture.”

“The two women killed in the attack should have known the risks. Anyone who goes to Yemen knows that it is a dangerous destination,” De Gucht told a press conference in Brussels. “When you travel with a group specializing in adventure holidays, you also know that there is a risk.”

Eleven Belgian tourists who survived the terrorist assault in Yemen had an emotional homecoming in Brussels Saturday, a foreign ministry spokesman said.

“It was a very emotional event, and very sad, in that the family of the two victims were there,” said spokesman Marc Michielsen, referring to the two Belgian women who were shot dead.

“Most of them already knew each other because they had traveled together in the past. The fact that there were two dead and one injured, that they knew each other, only intensified feelings,” the spokesman said.

The tourists from Flanders, most of them elderly, were whisked away from the airport terminal, and members of their families, who had been awaiting their arrival, were taken to an undisclosed location by bus to meet their loved ones, the Belgian press reported.

The bodies of the two women tourists, shot dead when gunmen opened fire on jeeps the tourists were using to travel in the eastern province of Hadramut’s Do’an Valley, were to be returned to Belgium at a later date.

Earlier, the Yemeni Tourism Minister Nabeel Al-Faqeeh said 12 Belgian tourists would head home on Saturday. However, their guide remained in Yemen to be with the wounded Belgian, 65-year-old Patrick Coucke, who was shot in the stomach.

An Interior Ministry official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said Yemeni authorities received e-mail and telephone threats of imminent terrorist attacks two days previous to the attack. The official said Al-Qaeda militants were pushing for the release of jailed comrades.

He attributed the attack to alleged Al-Qaeda fighters hiding in the Hadramout governorate, but the current situation of sharp social unrest in the south linked to unresolved issues dating back to the 1994 war of secession, combined with the government’s war against the Zaidite uprising in the northern Saada province are sufficient to make Yemen an unsafe place for any tourists even in the absence of al-Qaeda.

Yemeni Foreign Minister Abu Bakr Al-Qirbi expressed on Saturday deep condolence for the families of the Belgian victims who were killed and wounded in the terrorist Hadramout attack, Yemen News Agency Saba reported.



In a telephone conversation with his Belgian counterpart, Al-Qirbi labeled the attack that targeted a convey of innocent European tourists and their local drivers as a ‘criminal and terrorist act.’



The Yemeni official confirmed that security authorities, which are currently investigating the incident, would not hesitate to track down and arrest the assailants.

In July, a suicide bomber in an explosives-packed car attacked tourists visiting a temple linked to the ancient Queen of Sheba in central Yemen, killing eight Spaniards and two Yemenis. Yemeni authorities blamed the attack on an Al-Qaeda cell.

Ya han pillado a cuatro desgraciados, sin embargo, del "núcleo duro" sigue sin saberse nada de nada...

Yemen asegura haber detenido a presuntos asesinos de dos turistas belgas

Los organismos de seguridad yemeníes han detenido a cuatro personas acusadas de estar detrás del atentado que el pasado viernes causó la muerte de dos turistas belgas en el sur del país árabe, informaron hoy fuentes gubernamentales.

Uno de los cuatro sospechosos, arrestado junto con decenas de yemeníes tras el atentado, 'reconoció en los interrogatorios haber participado en el ataque, y facilitó información que llevó a la detención de sus cómplices', dijeron a Efe las mencionadas fuentes.

El atentado ocurrió en la provincia meridional de Hadramuat, cuando cuatro hombres armados abrieron fuego contra el convoy de vehículos en el que viajaban 15 turistas belgas, junto con sus chóferes y guías yemeníes, dos de éstos también murieron en el ataque.

Según las autoridades, los atacantes lograron huir en el desierto en un vehículo todoterreno.

Las fuerzas de seguridad llevaron a cabo tras el ataque una amplia operación en Hadramaut, a 900 kilómetros al sur de Saná, así como en las vecinas provincias de Shabwa y Mareb, donde en los últimos tres días se ha informado de la detención de decenas de personas.

Las autoridades no descartan que Al Qaeda esté detrás del atentado, el segundo contra ciudadanos occidentales en Yemen desde que en julio pasado ocho turistas españoles y dos acompañantes yemeníes murieran en un ataque suicida con coche bomba en Mareb, al este de Saná.

Yemen responsabilizó de aquel atentado a la rama yemení de Al Qaeda, y acusó a diez hombres -además del suicida- de implicación en el mismo, aunque no ha detenido a ninguno de ellos.

El encaje de al Qaeda en Yemen. Uno de sus portavoces dice que el gobierno ha contactado con ellos para que combatan a los shiíes del norte.
Yemen: Al-Qaeda fighting rebels 'at government's request'

Imagen Sanaa, 31 Jan. (AKI) -Yemeni al-Qaeda cell spokesman Ahmad Mansour has said that the government asked it to fight a Shia rebel group in the North of the country, local newspaper al-Wasat reported.

"They [the government] have asked us to fight against the followers of Imam al-Houthi of Saada. In return, Yemeni security forces will ease the persecution of our members," said Mansour.

Mansour added that al-Qaeda members are present in various locations throughout Yemen and have always had contact with the government, through Sheikhs and tribal leaders.

"Sheikh Osama bin Laden ordered us not to attack [the government] in the country and to combat only the communists, but the relationship with the government soured after the end of the war with Southern Yemen in 1994." said the al-Qaeda militant.

Mansour added that the United States still was their number-one enemy and that attacks against tourists could be carried out.

Atentado en Sana'a, pese a las fuertes medidas de seguridad implantadas allí. Los de Al Qaida en Yemen están diciendo: no sólo operamos en Marib o Hadramauth, sino que también tenemos capacidad operativa en la capital.

Una bomba deja un muerto y 25 heridos cerca de una universidad yemení
Las investigaciones preliminares indican que el ataque no tendría motivaciones políticas o terroristas

Sana. (EFE).- Al menos una persona murió y otras 25 resultaron heridas hoy al estallar una bomba cerca de la Universidad de Sana, la capital yemení, informaron a Efe fuentes de los cuerpos de seguridad.

La bomba explotó al lado de una cafetería ubicada frente a la entrada de la universidad, precisaron las fuentes, que afirmaron que la policía detuvo a un sospechoso.

Las investigaciones preliminares indican que el ataque no tendría motivaciones políticas o terroristas.

A mediados de diciembre pasado, seis policías yemeníes resultaron heridos por la explosión de dos bombas colocadas en la provincia de Hadramut, en el suroeste de Yemen.

Los artefactos estallaron de forma casi simultánea y tuvieron como blanco dos puestos de control policial en una carretera de esa provincia.

En Yemen, un país con una sociedad conservadora de naturaleza tribal, actúan varios grupos vinculados con la red terrorista Al Qaeda.

Se erigirá un monumento dedicado a los turistas asesinados en Marib.

La noticia es del Yemen Times:

Monument to be erected for Spanish tourists
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yemen Times Staff

SANA’A, Feb 20 — The Yemeni-Spanish Friendship Association (YSFA) in Sana’a is to organize a commemoration in Marib city in the coming few months. The commemoration is to be held in memory of the Spanish tourists who were killed in Marib.

On July 2, 2007, seven Spanish tourists and two Yemenis were killed when an apparent suicide bomber linked to Al-Qaeda rammed a car packed with explosives into their convoy.

The commemoration is to be held in coordination with Yemen’s embassy in Madrid and the Spanish embassy in Sana’a.

Abdullah Nasser Al-Kharraz, chairman of the YSFA, said the event would coincide with the first commemoration of the seven Spanish tourists. He added a monument is to be erected in the place where the incident took place. “The Spanish tourists’ families will be invited, in addition to social, media and political Yemeni figures, to attend the event,” he said.

Al-Kharraz further noted that his association seeks to open a Yemeni-Spanish cultural center in coordination with the Spanish embassy in Sana’a. The center will work to enhance cultural relations between Yemen and Spain.

Reivindicados los atentados perpetrados contra turistas españoles en Marib y contra los belgas en Hadramauth.

Un grupo vinculado a Al Qaeda reivindica el atentado contra ocho turistas españoles en Yemen

El 2 de julio de 2007 un terrorista suicida empotró su coche contra el convoy de los viajeros. -La red terrorista planea nuevos atentados en lugares frecuentados por occidentales de Yemen
AGENCIAS - Saná/Dubai - 26/02/2008
Un grupo islamista yemení hasta el momento desconocido y que asegura formar parte de Al Qaeda, las Brigadas de los Soldados de Yemen, ha reivindicado la responsabilidad de los dos atentados en que murieron ocho turistas españoles, en julio de 2007, y dos belgas, en enero de 2008, en este país de la Península Arábiga. A través de un comunicado, hecho público en Internet, han advertido además a los musulmanes que se mantengan alejados de "instalaciones extranjeras y gubernamentales" en Yemen.
Las Brigadas de los Soldados de Yemen aseguran que los ataques contra los turistas españoles y belgas fueron perpetrados en represalia por "las ejecuciones y las detenciones" de miembros de este grupo violento en Yemen.
"Hemos decidido combatir a los apóstatas que gobiernan lejos de los designios de Dios y han forjado alianzas con los enemigos de dios", afirma el grupo islamista en su declaración. "Advertimos a los musulmanes de que no se acerquen a ninguna instalación extranjera o gubernamental", previene.
Yemen había publicado una lista con los nombres y las fotos de diez hombres -además del suicida-, a los que acusó de haber planificado y ejecutado el atentado contra los turistas españoles. Los organismos de seguridad yemeníes, sin embargo, no han informado de la detención de ninguna de las personas cuyos nombres figuran en la lista de los supuestos implicados en el ataque.
Las autoridades de Yemen sí anunciaron, a finales de enero, la detención de los cuatro supuestos autores del atentado contra los dos belgas y tres acompañantes el día 18 de ese mes en la provincia de Hadramaut, en el sureste del país.
