Yemeni government struggles to contain al-Qaeda militants

Today, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said there were global implications of al-Qaeda’s efforts to use Yemen as a base for terrorist attacks far beyond the Middle East.

This latest warning came as Yemeni officials said security forces killed two al-Qaeda fighters in a gun battle.

For more, Daljit Dhaliwal interviews Juan Carlos Zarate, senior adviser with the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
