An American, a Briton and a South African were among several hostages Yemeni forces sought to free from Al-Qaeda this week, the defense ministry said on its website, describing a raid that a U.S. defense official said also involved U.S. special forces.Only the eight hostages rescued were found at the end of the operation, the soldier said.But in Washington, a U.S. official confirmed participation of U.S. special operations forces, and a second U.S. official acknowledged U.S. military support. The Pentagon said in 2012 the United States had resumed on-the-ground military training to bolster Yemen's fight against Al-Qaeda.
