Security services clashed with Islamic fundamentalists as they stormed apartments in the Yemeni capital on Thursday to arrest suspects believed to have provided support to a suicide bomber who killed seven Spanish tourists, a security official said. At least one fundamentalist - an Egyptian national - was killed in the gunfight, and two Yemeni armed forces were wounded, the Yemeni official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to talk to the media. He said some 15 people were detained, including three alleged al-Qaida members suspected of having provided assistance to the group that undertook the attack on Monday. He did not specify what kind of support the men were accused of, but said authorities were still looking for three other suspects believed to have provided fire cover for the suicide bomber.
