Yemen: 20 dead in attack by Islamic terrorists

August 20, 2012

Suspected al-Qaeda militants have attacked the intelligence headquarters of Yemen’s southern city of Aden, killing at least 20 people.

The attack on Saturday in the heart of the port city of Aden, underscored al-Qaeda’s ability to launch deadly strikes despite a two-month Yemeni military offensive.

The strikes by Yemeni government forces are backed by the US and this year dislodged militants who had taken over a string of southern towns near Aden.
