Al-Qaeda ambush kills 20 Yemeni soldiers

AFP, MARIB, Yemen

AFP, MARIB, Yemen: Al-Qaeda militants killed at least 20 Yemeni soldiers on Saturday when they ambushed their convoy in the south of the war-torn country, a military source said.
“Armed members of Al-Qaeda ambushed a group of young soldiers travelling in three civilian vehicles in the province of Abyan, killing at least 20 of them,” said the source, who requested anonymity.
The jihadists ordered the soldiers to get out of the vehicles and shot them early in the morning in the town of Ahwar, the source told AFP.
The soldiers were young recruits who were being deployed as part of the internationally recognised government’s efforts to restore security to areas under its control.
