South Yemen suicide car bomb kills one

The attacker detonated the explosives-packed car outside the gate to the security building in Tuban

A suicide car bombing at a military intelligence headquarters in southern Yemen Tuesday killed one person and wounded a dozen others, an official said.

The attacker detonated the explosives-packed car outside the gate to the security building in Tuban, 15 kilometers (nine miles) north of the southern city of Aden, seriously damaging the facility, according to the official.

"It seems al-Qaeda is behind the attack," he said.

Yemen has seen regular attacks on its security forces usually blamed on al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which remains active in the south and east despite several military campaigns to crush the group.

Three suspected al-Qaeda militants, one a Saudi national, were killed Sunday in the southern province of Shabwa when a car bomb they were preparing apparently detonated by accident.
