Al-Qaeda attack kills 19 in Yemen

ADEN: Al-Qaeda gunmen killed 19 soldiers in an attack on an army base in southern Yemen Friday, security officials said, a day after deadly assaults by rebels and a jihadist bomber. The gunmen stormed Al-Mahfad base in Abyan province and remained inside for several hours before military reinforcements came, three security officials told the Agence France-Presse, adding that the soldiers were killed in clashes with the jihadists. “The Qaeda gunmen took advantage of what happened Thursday in Aden and launched an assault on Al-Mahfad base and clashed with soldiers,” a government security official said.
