Police have arrested an Egyptian and two Yemenis suspected of participating in the July suicide attack against a Spanish tour group visiting the country, a security official said Sunday.
The Egyptian was identified as Mohammed Yaquot, an alleged al-Qaida member who entered Yemen illegally a few months ago, according to the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.
The official did not disclose the names of the two Yemenis, and it was unclear if they were suspected of belonging to al-Qaida, which authorities have blamed for the attack. The three arrests occurred Saturday, the official reported.
