Sanaa: Yemeni forces yesterday surrounded the hideout of kidnappers of three US citizens seized in the poor Arab state, apparently by a disgruntled tribe seeking the release of jailed tribesmen.

The three Americans, believed to be a woman who teaches English in Sanaa and her parents who were visiting from the United States, were kidnapped on Tuesday.
