Buena Borough man accused of attack in Yemen

A man from Buena Borough in Atlantic County is accused of carrying out an attack while attempting to escape from a Yemen hospital.

Sharif Mobley, 26, was reportedly one of 11 members of an al-Qaeda cell arrested in Yemen last week during a security raid.

Hospital officials say Mobley snatched a gun from one of his guards, shot at them and fled. One of the guards died as a result of the shooting.

Mobley was captured after leading security forces on a chase.

FBI spokesman Rich Wolf in Baltimore confirmed that the agency is looking into the case, but wouldn't comment further.
