Sui­cide bomber kills 5 sol­diers

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A sui­cide bomber rammed his ve­hi­cle into a large group of army re­in­force­ments in south Ye­men, killing five sol­diers. An­other seven sol­diers were wounded in the at­tack tar­get­ing troops who had been sent from the main south­ern city of here to Lahj prov­ince to fight ji­hadists, mil­i­tary of­fi­cials said on Au­gust 7. It was un­clear whether the at­tack had been car­ried out by al-Qaeda or the Is­lamic State group, both of which have gained ground in the south and claimed deadly anti-gov­ern­ment as­saults in the past.
