Car bomb hits Yemen's Defense Ministry, killing 15

Thursday, 05 December 2013 03:38 Published in National News

   ADEN, Yemen (AP) - Military and hospital officials say a suicide bomber had detonated his explosives-laden car at Yemen's Defense Ministry, killing 15 soldiers and wounding at least 40.

   They said as many as 12 gunmen also have been killed in a firefight between troops and a carload of attackers who arrived minutes after the Thursday morning blast, apparently in a bid to take over the complex in downtown Sanaa, Yemen's capital.

   They said the gunmen were armed with assault rifles, hand grenades and rocket-propelled grenades.

   There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which bore the hallmarks of al-Qaida, whose chapter in Yemen is considered among the world's most active.

   The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to journalists.
