Seven killed in an attack by Al Qaeda in Yemen

Seven people including four soldiers, were killed in an attack allegedly by the terrorist organization Al Qaeda in southern Yemen, as reported by witnesses and the official news agency Saba. Nine others were injured in the attack, which took place when armed men have detonated an improvised explosive device against a military patrol in a crowded market in the province of Abyan.

An Al Qaeda militant was also injured during the shooting that took place after the explosion. "I usually do not attack soldiers when civilians are around," he pointed a witness who wished to remain anonymous. Witnesses have seen the attack an act of revenge for the death of network leader Osama bin Laden.

The attack occurred three days after three soldiers were killed and four wounded in an alleged assault by Al Qaeda to a government complex in the city of Zunjubar, in the province of Abyan.
