27 Killed in suicide attack on Yemeni army recruits
Sana'a - QNA
A suicide bomber killed 27 people on Sunday when he blew himself up in a crowd of men seeking to enlist in the Yemeni army in the south-eastern city of Mukalla, medical officials said.
About 60 more people were injured in the blast, which took place as would-be recruits gathered at the gates of a barracks in the city, according to officials.
Pro-government forces and allied Arab troops took control of Mukalla last month after the withdrawal of al-Qaeda militants who had occupied it for a year. At least seven people were killed on Thursday in an attack on an army compound in the city.
