SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Security officials in Yemen say three alleged al-Qaida operatives have accidentally blown themselves up while outfitting a car with explosives in preparation for an operation in the southern Yemeni province of Shabwa. Tribesmen from the area and security officials identified the three, one Saudi and two Yemenis, as al-Qaida members.
And that appeared in TIME, and ABC News, the Washington Post and other outlets.
Last year, in the BBC, we read
The government is battling al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula militants who often target the military.
This pervasive perversion of the news is dangerous.
