Yemeni troops kill seven suspected al Qaeda militant
Yemeni security forces killed seven suspected al Qaeda militants on Thursday when they tried to attack an army facility in the volatile eastern region of Wadi Hadramout, where the government is perceived to be weak.


The Defence Ministry said on its website the militants' target was the headquarters of the first military district, whose jurisdiction covers the region, in Hadramout's second largest city of Seiyoun, some 650 km (400 miles) from Aden.
