Yemen sentences al-Qaida militant to death for terror plots

SAN'A, Yemen  — A court in Yemen sentenced an al-Qaida militant to death on Monday after convicting him of involvement in terror attacks and manufacturing explosives.
The militant, Saleh al-Shawish, shouted in court after the verdict that al-Qaida would have its revenge. "Your destruction will be by our hands, God willing," he barked, "starting in Abyan" — a reference to a southern province where attacks by the terror network against security forces have increased in recent months.
