3 Pro-Government Militiamen Killed in Yemen, State Media

 Yemen Post Staff

At least three pro-government militiamen were killed and five others injured after an Al-Qaeda suicide bomber blew himself up inside a government office in Yemen's southern province of Abyan on Friday, state media said.

The September 26 website quoted locals in the capital Zinjibar of Abyan as saying the bomber detonated his explosive belt in the old local government office targeting the members of the pro-government popular resistance committees.

"Three were killed immediately and five others were critically hurt," they said.

Since the Yemeni army launched a US-backed offensive and drove Al-Qaeda militants out of their strongholds in Abyan and Shabwa provinces earlier this year, militants of AQAP and its offshoot, the Ansar Al-Sharia, have been carrying out sporadic deadly suicide bombings targeting military and security commanders and pro-government militias.

The bombings have been reported in Abyan and other main cities including the capital Sanaa which saw the deadliest ever suicide attacks this year.

Today's attack comes as many families of those which were displaced by the battles last year have started to return to their homes and villages in Abyan.

In addition to Al-Qaeda attacks, explosions of landmines, which were planted by militants, have killed scores of civilians and troops.
