Twin sui­cide bomb­ings kill 6 sol­diers

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Two sui­cide car bomb­ings struck an army base in south­ern Ye­men, killing at least six sol­diers and wound­ing 12 others. One bomber det­o­nated his ex­plo­sives-laden car at the gate of the base in the city of Ha­bi­layn, in Lahj prov­ince, while the sec­ond car bomb went off only 50 me­tres away, a mil­i­tary of­fi­cial said on Au­gust 2. The base be­longs to troops loyal to Pres­i­dent Abedrabbo Man­sour Hadi who ear­lier this year launched an of­fen­sive against al-Qaeda mil­i­tants.
