Car bombs target pro-government militia in Yemen, 10 dead

SANAA- Yemeni security officials say at least 10 fighters from a pro-government militia have been killed when suspected al-Qaida militants targeted their convoy with two car bombs.


The officials say the attack took place late on Sunday in the Yafea area in Lahj province, where Yemen's al-Qaida branch controls several areas, including a large base in which it has stockpiled heavy weapons looted from army depots elsewhere.


The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
