Yemen periodically releases additions to its most-wanted al-Qaida list, which now has over 150 names.

Al-Qaida has stepped up its presence in Yemen — frequently launching brazen attacks on government troops and diplomats — and has proven to be a stubborn challenge for the country's weak central government.
