October 02, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Yemeni government forces killed a suspected Al Qaeda member who was convicted of an attack on a French oil tanker and escaped from prison this year.

Fawaz Yahya Rabeie was killed after anti-terrorism troops launched a dawn raid on a house in the capital, Sana, based on a tip, security officials said.

The forces also killed another suspected Al Qaeda member, Mohammed Dailami, and arrested two other suspects. Rabeie and Dailami were among 23 convicts who escaped from prison in February.
