Yemen's government is trying to find ways to combat al-Qaeda, which has a strong presence in the country.

Saana has launched several air raids in recent weeks on people suspected of belonging to the network.

But as Al Jazeera's Mohammed Vall reports from Aden, with a corrupt government and untrustworthy president and with the attacks so far proving ineffective, Yemenis remain uncertain about how best to deal with al-Qaeda.
