Pretty clear where our forces need to strike if the idea is to kill as many Al Queda low-lives as possible;

Hundreds of suspected al-Qaeda gunmen have captured the southern Yemeni city of Zinjibar after heavy fighting with security forces. Government officials said that the provincial capital was under the control of militants after fighting that began on Friday and had claimed 16 lives, including civilians. The fighters “were able to gain control of the city of Zinjibar … and took over all government facilities” a security official told AFP. Only the headquarters of the the 25th mechanised brigade was holding out, he added, but it was besieged by the gunmen. A local resident said: “About 300 Islamic millitants and al-Qaeda men came into Zinjibar and took over everything on Friday.”
