Yemen town Jaar 'deserted' by al-Qaeda, retaken by army - BBC News

Yemen town Jaar 'deserted' by al-Qaeda, retaken by army - BBC News

A town in Yemen has been retaken by the country's army, amid claims militants withdrew during the night.

Official sources in Yemen said the southern town of Jaar was taken from al-Qaeda after heavy fighting.

However, local witnesses said militants in the town fled in the night with weapons and furniture towards Shuqra, according to the AFP news agency.

Yemeni troops are trying to regain control of the province of Abyan, which was seized by the militants last year.

Jaar has been under the control of Ansar al-Sharia an off-shoot of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula for more than a year.

During 2011 the country was also the scene of numerous anti-government protests and separatist unrest.

In May 2012 the Yemeni Army, backed by the United States, began an offensive to retake towns controlled by Islamist militants.

Jihadists had controlled a large area of the southern province of Abyan.

According to Reuters, the fight to regain control of Jaar led to the deaths of at least 24 people, the majority of whom were militants.

The town has a population of more than 100,000 people.

Residents were quoted as saying militants left behind flyers apologising for any harm that had been brought to Jaar and its residents and asking for forgiveness.

Yemen is the Arab world's most impoverished country, and has the most serious water scarcity problems in the world.

It is estimated about 350,000 people have been displaced by conflict in the north.

In 2011, anti-government protests led to the resignation of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, with power handed to the former Vice-President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

While the protests may have died down, militant action in the country has carried on, earning focus from the government under Mr Hadi.
