Yemen, involved in a military offensive against al Qaeda in the south of the country, said security forces in the capital shot dead a militant suspected of killing a French security agent two days before, state news agency Saba reported on Wednesday.Yemeni forces are conducting an offensive against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and its local offshoot, Ansar al-Sharia al Qaeda and captured the militants' main stronghold in the south on Tuesday.Waeli had organised other attacks on Westerners, it said, including the kidnapping of a Dutch couple last year who were released in December after six months in captivity, and was also involved in an attack on the central prison in Sanaa in February that freed at least 19 al Qaeda-linked inmates.The level of retaliatory attacks against security forces has risen sharply since the start of the army offensive last week.
