Yemeni troops were surrounding a mosque controlled by ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh Sunday amid fears he is plotting a coup, days after the ex-strongman's media outlets were silenced.Also Sunday, an Al-Qaeda suspect killed eight people in the south and fresh clashes erupted between security forces and Shiite Houthi rebels in the north, ending a U.N.-mediated 11-day truce.Saleh ruled Yemen for 33 years before he was forced out in February 2012 and replaced by his long-time deputy Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi under a U.N.- and Gulf-sponsored deal.A source close to the presidency told AFP that weapons had been stored in the mosque and were being guarded by gunmen loyal to Saleh. The army says 500 Al-Qaeda militants have been killed in the offensive, while 40 soldiers have died and 100 been wounded.
