SAN'A, Yemen – Police arrested 14 suspected members of Al-Qaida in a raid on one of the group's alleged hideouts in south Yemen, the Yemen interior ministry said Sunday.

The ministry statement said the raid took place on Saturday night in Abyan province in the town of Lawder, 155 miles (250 kilometers) southeast of the capital where government troops have for weeks been battling what it describes as Al-Qaida elements.

The statement added that further raids are planned in the area.

Elsewhere in south Yemen, gunmen from a separatist movement attacked an army post in Rabwa near the town of Habalein and killed four soldiers. Two of the attackers died as well.
