TEHRAN (IQNA) – Al-Qaeda blew up a medical center in war-torn Yemen Tuesday, 10 days after executing a dentist it accused of guiding US drone strikes against its militants.


The clinic in the Somaa district of Al-Baida province was where the dentist worked before his execution, a local official told AFP.

The militant shot Motthar al-Youssoufi, then crucified his body and left it outside the health center on August 15.

On Tuesday, they blew up the clinic.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which is active in Yemen, is considered the radical group's most dangerous branch.

The extremist group has thrived in the chaos of a Saudi-led war against Yemen.
