Movement has ties to rebels and al-Qaeda

[01/August/2009]



ABYAN, Aug 01 (Saba) – The southern anti-government movement has ties to the Houthi rebels in Yemen's restive region of Saada and al-Qaeda, a movement leader has said.

Tariq al-Fadhli, Jihadist leader in Yemen who joined the movement late last year, was quoted by the state-run 26sep.net as saying that the three destructive partners interconnect through direct links  to destabilize Yemen.

"The movement which openly supports the rebels in Saada must resemble with al-Qaeda and its supporters," he said.

In the meantime, an expert in terrorist groups who asked not to be named told www.althawra.net that what al-Fadhli is leading in south Yemen is considered terrorist and al-Qaeda-inspired destruction.

The movement is misleading the people in the south taking advantage of Sectionalism.

Fans of the movement have recently committed many destructive acts in several southern parts, the worst one when they attacked a security compound in Abyan killing about eight citizens and injuring eighteen others including policemen.
