Yemen: More than 20 killed

August 5, 2012

A suicide attack at a town in south Yemen recently recaptured by the army from Al-Qaeda forces killed 20 people Saturday and wounded another 20, the governor of the province said.

In a separate incident in the east of the country meanwhile, a suspected US  drone strike killed five Al-Qaeda members late Saturday, a local official said.

“Twenty people have been killed and 20 others wounded,” governor Jamal  al-Aqal said in a statement on the suicide attack posted on the defence  ministry’s website.
