SANAA – Yemeni security forces killed at least four suspected Al-Qaeda militants on Thursday during clashes in the capital Sanaa, a security source said.

According to the source, clashes erupted between gunmen and troops manning the presidential palace in Sanaa. The shootout left four militants dead and a number of people injured, he said, without giving further details.

The clashes are still ongoing, he added.

Yemen has been dogged by turmoil since pro-democracy protests in 2011 forced autocratic president Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down after 33 years in power.
