'Qaeda' attacks in Yemen kill 56 cops, troops

Suspected al-Qaeda militants launched dawn attacks in Yemen yesterday killing at least 56 security personnel in the deadliest assault on troops since the army retook jihadist strongholds last year.
Two of the three attacks in Shabwa, a southern province where al-Qaeda has long been active, involved vehicle bombs, military officials said.
Eight of the militants, among them two suicide bombers were also killed.
The deadliest single attack was at an army camp responsible for ensuring security at oilfields in the region, where 38 soldiers were killed, the sources said.
The attacks were the deadliest since May 21, 2012 when some 100 soldiers were killed and hundreds more wounded in a suicide bombing in the capital.
