Yemeni policemen arrested a suspected al-Qaida militant and found in his possession 266 videotape CDs documenting al-Qaida military operations, the Interior Ministry said Saturday.

The 26-year-old suspect was arrested when he was onboard a car in al-Bayda province, south of the capital Sanaa, said the ministry in a report posted on its website.

The ministry did neither tell when the suspect was captured nor identified him, but noted that it held him for investigative procedures and confiscated the videotape CDs of his possession.

Sanaa has come under mounted pressure from Washington and international community to solve its internal conflicts and focus on fighting al-Qaida militants after its Yemeni wing boasted that they were behind a botched attempt to bomb a U.S. passenger jet last December.
