A team of U.S. special operations forces conducted a joint raid in a remote region of Yemen to rescue eight hostages being held in a cave by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, ABC news reports.

Elements of the Navy’s elite SEAL Team Six participated in the daring pre-dawn raid Tuesday in a remote region near the border with Saudi Arabia.
A U.S. official confirmed that about two dozen U.S. special operations forces and a team of Yemeni counterterrorism troops conducted a raid early Tuesday morning near the border with Saudi Arabia that rescued six Yemenis, a Saudi and an Ethiopian. It was unclear how long the hostages had been held by the al Qaeda affiliate.

Another U.S. official told ABC News that elements of the Navy’s elite SEAL Team Six participated in the raid. SEAL Team Six is the elite special operations unit involved in high-risk missions including the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
