Men claiming to be leaders of al-Qaeda have made a rare public appearance in Yemen, telling an anti-government rally the fight is against the US, not the country's army.

The statement was made at an al-Qaeda training camp in southern Yemen - the same one that was attacked by the Americans leaving more than 30 dead.
