Renegade military commander makes the escape of al-Qaeda prisoners easier’ official

27/6/2011-YemenOnline

The Spokesman of the Yemeni government , Abdo Al-Ganadi said on Sunday a Renegade military commander helped al-Qaeda prisoners to escape from  Al-Mukalla prison in Hadramout province east of Yemen.  Al-Ganadi didn’t  mention   the name of  the renegade military commander .

 


Number of  Yemeni analysts affirmed  to YemenOnline  that the Government’s spokesman  has meant by that accusation the Major General Ali Mohsen Al-Ahmer  who defected from the Yemeni army under the pretext of protecting the protestors last March 2011. Al-Ahmar  is known for his good relations with the Islamists ,he  had embraced many of the Yemeni mujahidin  returned  to Yemen from Afghanistan and are working as soldiers under his command.

46 prisoners escaped last  Wednesday via a tunnel they dug under their cells in the coastal city of Mukalla in Hadramout province, a Yemeni intelligence official said on condition of anonymity because he isn’t authorized to speak to the media. One snatched a gun, killing a guard and wounding another.
