Two soldiers were killed and eight others wounded on Sunday in a bomb explosion targeted at a military patrol in Al-Yahira area, between Seyoun and Shibam districts in Hadramout.

A source at the 135th Infantry Brigade spoke to the Yemen Times on condition of anonymity, saying, “some Al-Qaeda affiliates detonated a bomb when the patrol passed in the area.”

“The soldiers pursued the militants who kept watching the explosion and arrested three of them,” the source added.
The source denied the news reported by local media about the arrest of six militants, including an American and two Ethiopians.

Several clashes have taken place between the military and affiliates of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in mid-August that have left dozens dead on both sides.
