Islamist militants kill 10 Yemeni soldiers

ADEN - Islamist militants killed 10 Yemeni soldiers in an attack on an army checkpoint in the south of the country on Saturday, a local official said.
Al-Qaeda-linked militant group Ansar al-Sharia (Partisans of Islamic Law) claimed responsibility for the killings at the checkpoint in the al-Horur area. In a text message purporting to come from the group, it said it had killed 30 conscripts.
The claim could not immediately be independently verified.
