SANAA - Two militants drove a car packed with explosives into a Yemeni army base in the south of the country on Saturday, killing themselves and a soldier, the Defence Ministry said.
The attack targeted barracks of the Republican Guard forces in the province of al-Bayda at dawn, the ministry said on its website. It blamed al-Qaida for the blast.
"The explosion was very loud and took place in Dar al-Nasr, which is a military site of the Republican Guard," said a website close to Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, a general who defected from former President Ali Abdullah Saleh in the early days of an uprising against him last year.
