Yemen said late on Thursday it had foiled a number of al Qaeda attacks on government, military and diplomatic premises in the capital Sanaa and arrested several suspected would-be suicide bombers. Two weeks ago, the army launched its biggest offensive in nearly two years to try to dislodge the Islamist militant group from its southern strongholds, after a wave of attacks against government officials, security forces, foreigners and energy facilities. The Interior Ministry said security forces had thwarted "a number of cowardly terrorist operations that al Qaeda had planned in the capital" targeting "vital government establishments, security and military headquarters as well as some foreign embassies".
