SHAFAQNA – A suspected Al-Qaeda bomb attack killed three Yemeni soldiers and wounded five others Friday, a military source said, the second attack in days on security forces in Yemen’s southeastern Hadramawt province. An explosive device planted in the town of Seyun was detonated remotely as a vehicle carrying army personnel passed by, the source said.
Three soldiers were killed on Wednesday in a similar bombing west of Seyun. Security forces are often the target of deadly attacks, which are usually blamed on Al-Qaeda militants, who are active in the violence-wracked country. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is considered by Washington as the jihadist network’s most dangerous affiliate.
