Yemen has deployed several hundred extra troops to two mountainous eastern provinces that are al-Qaida's main strongholds in the country, according to security officials. The officials said that the reinforcements were sent Friday to Marib and Jouf provinces, where al-Qaida's presence is believed to be strongest and where the central government has little control. The officials spoke Saturday on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.
