SANA'A, May 14- The counter -terrorism court issued on Saturday a verdict jailing 2 al-Qa'eda suspects, after they were handed over to the government by Syria and Qatar.

Under the verdict, suspect al-Khadher Salim Abdullah al-Hatimi was sentenced to 3 years and four months in prison, while suspect Abdullah Ahmad al-Raimi received a 4-year imprisonment term for forging ID and travel documents.

Abdullah al-Raimi appealed the verdict was unjust while the other suspect accepted his fate.

It is worth mentioning the suspects were captured by the Qatari security authorities after their return from Afghanistan last year.
