ADEN: Five Yemeni soldiers were killed and three wounded on Sunday when gunmen suspected of ties to al-Qaeda opened fire on a military checkpoint, an army source said. The source said the gunmen managed to escape after the attack on the checkpoint in the northeast of Shabwa province, a southern stronghold of Yemen’s powerful al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Sunday’s attack is the latest in a string of suspected AQAP shootings targeting military checkpoints and outposts in Yemen.
