Yemeni Prime Minister Khaled Bahah said Tuesday that confronting extremist militants in government-controlled regions of the war-torn country was inevitable in the future.Al-Qaeda and ISIS are both active in Yemen, but so far the Yemeni government and its allies have concentrated on battling Iran-backed Shiite Huthi rebels.The Saudi-led coalition supporting the government with air strikes and ground troops has so far not targeted the extremists even though Al-Qaeda seized the southeastern port city of Mukalla in April.The Yemeni government sat down with the rebels and their allies last month in Switzerland for six days of talks that ended without a major breakthrough.
