Interior Ministry spokesman Major-General Mohammed al-Qaidy said security forces arrested the six members of what it called a terrorist cell a month ago, and found weapons, fake passports and fake Yemeni currency in their possession.The army on Tuesday launched a major offensive to root out al Qaeda militants in two southern strongholds, following air strikes earlier this month that Yemen said targeted the militants and killed some 65 of them in central and southern parts of Yemen.Qaidy said security forces also arrested another three-person cell that had made threats against the Saudi embassy.In the weeks between March 1 and April 23, 148 people were killed by "terrorist acts", including army and security forces, citizens and social personalities, Qaidy said.
