Sanaa, March 24, 2014
Twenty Yemeni soldiers were killed in an attack on a military checkpoint in the eastern province of Hadramout, state news agency Saba said on Monday quoting a local official.
Yemen has been in turmoil since mass protests forced long-serving President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down in 2012.
His successor, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, has been struggling to restore order in the country of 25 million, where Al Qaeda militants have a strong presence. - Reuters
