Yemen Dispatch: Battling Insurgents

Yemeni security forces are working on honing their counterterrorism tactics in the battle against a resurgent al-Qaeda affiliate in the region — AQAP, or Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. It was AQAP that recruited and trained the would-be Christmas Day bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. We spent the morning with a seasoned unit of anti-terrorist troops, who practiced storming a house where “insurgents” were hiding. You can view a sample in this video dispatch. And watch for more of our online and broadcast reports from Yemen in the coming week.
