Source: Suicide bomber attacks Yemen's defense ministry

SANAA - A suicide bomber drove a car packed with explosives into the gate of Yemen's defence ministry in the capital Sanaa on Thursday causing "a large number of casualties", a source at the ministry told Reuters.
Gun shots were heard near the area as an ambulance rushed to the scene, a Reuters witness said.
Violence is common in Yemen, where an interim government is grappling with southern secessionists, al-Qaida-linked militants and northern Houthi rebels, as well as severe economic problems inherited from veteran President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
