Yemeni security forces patrol in the capital Sanaa on May 21, 2014Al-Qaeda militants, including suicide bombers, launched a massive pre-dawn assault on one of southeastern Yemen’s main towns on Saturday, killing at least 15 soldiers and police, security officials said. They attacked army bases and public buildings in Seiyun, second city of Hadramawt province, with car bombs, rocket-launchers and heavy machineguns, the officials said. The regional military headquarters, the special forces base and the main police station were all targeted in the attack, which began shortly after midnight (2100 GMT Friday), residents said. The militants lost 12 dead, three of them suicide bombers, but were able to evacuate around 20 wounded when they finally withdrew late in the morning, a local government official said.
