 A soldier of the Shabwa Elite Forces (SEF) was found dead yesterday in Ataq after having been reported missing about two weeks ago, local news websites said on Wednesday.

The local residents told the press that the SEF's soldier Sabri Qassem al-Ataiqi was found murdered behind an abandoned house in a remote area of the provincial capital.

Last month, Yemen's Muslim Brotherhood's militias (Islah Party) assassinated SEF's soldier called Talal Farid al-Awlaki in the district of Nisab, 40 km west of Ataq city.

Earlier, three SEF's soldiers and two civilians were abducted from Haban in Shabwa governorate by the Islah's gunmen.

Since its occupation of Shabwa governorate, the terrorist militias of Islah were involved in abducting and killing a number of the SEF personnel.
