Three Yemeni families were arrested upon arrival from Afghanistan to Yemen on Monday 9, and are still detained by the Yemeni authorities for questioning.
Yemen authorities refused handing over the families to their relatives, a source told the Yemen Times.
The source added that all returnees from Afghanistan, suspected to have links with al-Qaeda network, have been put under strict surveillance as requested by the USA.
On the other hand, seven Yemenis have been reportedly killed in Konduz while fighting along side with the Taliban forces against the Northern Alliance and 15 more Yemenis were killed in Kandahar, a well-informed source told the Yemen Times.
