Two Islamic militants from Yemen who sought to join the insurgency in Iraq have been returned home by authorities in Egypt and Syria where they were arrested, an official and the militants' relatives said Sunday. This brings the number of would-be insurgents that Yemen has so far acknowledged taking back to 10. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said the two Yemenis were handed over about three months ago. One of the two, Wadi al-Doula, 25, was handed back by Syria where he was arrested as he tried to cross into Iraq, his uncle, Abdul-Karim al-Doula told The Associated Press by telephone from the town of Abyan in the south of Yemen.
