    “Al Qaeda has fired a verbal salvo in a multifaction battle over Yemen, saying it’s offering 20 kilograms of gold to anyone who kills or captures two prominent Shia Muslim opponents, including the leader of the rebels who overtook Yemen’s capital.

    Yemen-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, in a news release and wanted poster distributed online, offers the reward for the death or capture of Houthi leader Abdelmalik Bedrudin Al-Houthi and former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

    Converted to currency, the gold reward would be worth about $774,000. AQAP referred to Al-Houthi and Saleh as the “two heads of evil.”

    AQAP is one of several factions fighting to control Yemen. With Sunni Islamic roots, AQAP is a bitter enemy of the Houthi faction, which is Shia and widely believed to be supported by Iran….”

    “Military officials say 11 civilians and two soldiers have been killed in three attacks in Egypt’s restive northern Sinai.

    The officials said a mortar landed Wednesday on a residential area south of Sheik Zweid, a town in northern Sinai, hitting a house and killing nine of its residents. Separately, officials said a missile landed on a house in another village, killing two civilians.

    In a third attack, outside the provincial capital el-Arish, officials said an explosive detonated as a military vehicle drove past, killing two police officers. The officials spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

    Northern Sinai has been a longtime hotbed of Islamic insurgency. Egyptian officials said the military had no operations in the area.”

    Liberty GB chairman Paul Weston told Andrew Neil that police and council staff in Rochdale and Rotherham overlooked child abuse “because they were terrified of being called racist” about Muslims.
