Yemen fights Al-Qa'eda Update I

I missed this, but apparently last week al-Qa'eda in Yemen attacked a natural gas pipeline.  That's what set off the whole battle in Shabwa province, which just ended.  According to tribal chiefs, they negotiated to get the terrorists out of the town, although the military says the terrorists fled.  The Yemeni troops have been getting training from US special forces, and should be improving.
