Al-Qaeda suicide bomb attack in Yemen’s Shabwa kills 14 soldiers

DUBAI: An Al-Qaeda suicide bomb attack on a security checkpoint in Yemen’s Shabwa province killed 14 soldiers and wounded others on Tuesday.
A security source said that gunmen from the terrorist organization attacked a group of police forces using a suicide bomb and then fired a machine gun and mortars on the location.
The Shabwa elite forces took control of a junction in the province, where an attack took place in early August, and carried out raids and prosecutions of suspected Al-Qaeda members.
