At least 35 Yemen soldiers slain in clash with militants


At least 35 Yemeni soldiers were killed in the south of the country on Sunday in clashes with militants linked to al-Qaeda, medics said. Medics at a military hospital in the southern port city of Aden said dozens were also wounded and the number of casualties was likely to rise as a result of the fighting. Clashes broke out after twin suicide bombings targeting military posts in Zinjibar earlier on Sunday.
