'Qaeda' gunman kills Yemen soldier in southern town

Military police man a checkpoint in the northwestern province of Omran, on June 9, 2014A suspected Al-Qaeda gunman killed a soldier in a Yemeni provincial capital on Tuesday, bringing the death toll in the southern town of Huta to three in as many days. Tensions have run high in Huta since a wave of arrests targeting suspected Al-Qaeda militants prompted a Sunday assault on the police station where they were being held, killing a soldier. Lahij province is home to the Al-Anad air base, north of the main southern city of Aden, where Yemeni officials have said Washington has personnel deployed gathering intelligence for its drone war against Al-Qaeda. In late April, the Yemeni army launched a ground offensive against Al-Qaeda in Abyan and Shabwa provinces farther east.
