Sanaa: At least 13 soldiers were killed in a suicide car bombing Sunday that targeted the military headquarters in Yemen, an official said.

"The soldiers were unable to stop the car from dashing toward the main gate," the official added.

A number of police and civilian vehicles were damaged in the explosion. A senior police officer was also among the dead.
