Men walks past destroyed buildings in Zinjibar, capital of Abyan province in southern Yemen on December 5, 2012, six months after the Yemeni army ousted al-Qaeda loyalists from the region. Before a counter-offensive by the army earlier this year, Al-Qaeda held large swathes of southern Yemen. But since its loss of a string of towns near the port city of Aden in June, most have fled into desert regions farther east. Although weakened, they continue to launch hit-and-run attacks on government and civilian targets across Yemen. AFP PHOTO/SAMI AL-ANSI (Photo credit should read SAMI AL-ANSI/AFP/Getty Images)
