Al- Qaida as­sault kills 5 soldiers

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

An at­tack by “al-Qaida ele­ments” at a gas ter­mi­nal in Ye­men killed five soldiers on Sun­day, a mil­i­tary source said, as Wash­ing­ton kept its em­bassy in Sanaa closed. “The at­tack­ers ar­rived in a car at the army check­point near the Bal­haf ter­mi­nal. They opened fire with au­to­matic weapons, killing five soldiers be­fore flee­ing,” the source said on con­di­tion of anonymity.
