Yemeni and Emirati troops recaptured the southern port city of Mukalla Sunday, officials said, entering and taking back a stronghold of Al-Qaeda's Yemeni wing for the first time in over a year of war.Dozens of armored vehicles and hundreds of troops gathered in Ramah, around 70 kilometers north of Mukalla, to prepare to move in, they added.Sunday's airstrikes on Al-Qaeda in Mukalla were carried out in coordination with a ground offensive in militant-controlled territory further west, a Yemeni military official said. Yemeni troops Saturday battled Al-Qaeda at Al-Koud near Zinjibar, another southern city considered an Al-Qaeda stronghold, while an airstrike from a drone killed two suspected Al-Qaeda fighters south of the city of Marib.
