Yemeni security forces have arrested a local Al-Qaeda leader during a sweep targeting extremists in the southern city of Aden, security officials said Tuesday.The government imposed a night-time curfew in Aden for one month after clashes on Sunday blamed on extremists killed at least 22 people, including 10 members of the security forces.Sunday's clashes erupted when forces loyal to Hadi came up against resistance while trying to secure the Aden port, security sources said.The city was rocked by months of fighting last year between pro-government forces and Iran-backed Shiite Huthi rebels who seized the capital Sanaa in September 2014 before expanding south.
