SAN'A, Yemen — Two security officers were killed and three injured in a shootout with suspected al-Qaida terrorists in a southern town on Monday, said Yemeni authorities.

An official statement Monday said two suspects were arrested after the clashes in Mukalla, in southern Hadramwat province. It gave no further details.

Residents told The Associated Press a security force surrounded the suspects' hideout during the 45-minute shootout. The witnesses said the militants lobbed grenades at the force, prompting a hail of gunfire.
