Yemeni troops and armor have pushed Al-Qaeda militants out of main cities in Shabwa, residents said Friday, regaining government control over the southern province for the first time in years.They said Al-Qaeda militants withdrew to the mountains without a fight as armored vehicles from the government army and a new force known as the Elite Shabwa Forces rolled into the provincial capital Ataq, and other towns and cities from Thursday morning. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has taken advantage of the civil war pitting the Saudi-backed government of President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi against the Houthi movement to try to widen its control and influence in Yemen.In a separate incident in the parallel war, three women and six children from the same family were killed in an airstrike by the Arab-led coalition on their home in northern Yemen Friday, a health official said.
