Al Qaeda strengthens in Yemen, as officials say significant presence in six provinces

Hundreds of hardcore Al Qaeda fighters are believed to be occupying the southern and eastern regions of Yemen in an effort to expand a safe haven and strengthen forces, U.S. officials familiar with the situation tell Fox News.

The officials described the threat to the U.S. as consistent and persistent.”We work on the assumption that  Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is coming after America every day,” the officials said. These are “extremists who joined a violent death cult. Their goal is to martyr themselves.”
