MADRID (EFE) – Four suspected members of Al Qaeda linked to the July attack in Yemen on Spanish tourists have died in a clash with security forces, said Yemen police, cited by EFE in El Mundo.

Police did not publicly name all the suspects who died, but said it was part of an operation against Al Qaeda which continued in the region.

A police officer was killed and two others were injured.

Security forces using army helicopters clashed with the group of Al Qaeda suspects in Magreb in the north-east of the country. Three other suspects were arrested.

Security forces have been investigating Al Qaeda for the killing of eight Spanish tourists and two Yemenis since July.

Authorities say 20-year-old Abdu Mohamad Sad Ahmad Reheqa was the suicide bomber who smashed his convoy loaded with explosives into the tourist convoy in front of the city’s temple.
