ADEN - Yemeni security forces foiled a plan by militants linked to al-Qaida to bomb an air base jointly used with the United States to carry out attacks against the group, a security official said on Saturday.

A car packed with explosives was discovered by authorities near the gate of Al Anad air base in Yemen's southern province of Lahj, the official told Reuters.

"This was a planned suicide attack. Once the car was discovered, security forces immediately arrested two men who were inside the vehicle ... The car was filled with explosives and anti-tank missiles," he added.
