Terrorism: Yemen - no Al-Qaida suspects freed

Yemen's government has denied reports that it released a large group of al-Qaida suspects from prison last week.

The Yemeni embassy in Washington issued a statement Tuesday saying Yemen freed 108 prisoners who are not affiliated with al-Qaida in any way. It says the released detainees had been put on trial for violating Yemeni laws and most had served their sentences.
