SANAA - Two al-Qaida-linked militants and a pro-government tribesman were killed in clashes in Yemen's restive south on Sunday, a local official and a tribesman said.

Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula has made its base in the impoverished state, which slid into chaos last year after protests that eventually forced veteran ruler Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down.

The group has mounted operations in neighboring Saudi Arabia as well as attempting to launch attacks against the United States.
