Suicide Bomber Kills at Least Four Yemeni Soldiers

An al Qaeda-linked group in Yemen is claiming responsibility for a suicide bombing that killed at least four government soldiers. On Tuesday, a suicide bomber detonated a vehicle laden with explosives near a checkpoint in the south of the country. The bombing is the latest in a spate of attacks by Islamist militants in Yemen. They have escalated their operations in Yemen's south after Yemen's new government has vowed to fight al Qaeda's regional wing.
