Bomb explodes at checkpoint in Yemen, killing 3 soldiers

A Yemeni security official says a bombing at a military checkpoint in central Yemen has killed three soldiers and injured four. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to talk to the media, says the bomb exploded when the soldier's car arrived early Wednesday at the checkpoint in central Marib province. The checkpoint, meant to guard foreign tourists, is close to the scene of a July suicide attack on a Spanish tour group's convoy at an ancient temple.
