Suicide Attacks Kill 10 Soldiers In Yemen

At least 10 soldiers have been killed, following three suicide attacks, by Islamist militants, on army bases in Yemen.

At least 10 soldiers have been killed in three attacks on army bases in the southern Yemen city of Mukalla, military sources say.

Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for at least one of the attacks, a car bombing.

Mukalla was held by al-Qaeda militants up until a month ago, when it was recaptured by pro-government forces.

The attacks came hours before Yemeni Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Dagher was due to arrive in Mukalla for a visit.
