Militants attack Yemen-Saudi border post

Officials say militants have targeted a border post between Yemen and Saudi Arabia in an attack that left two soldiers and three of the gunmen dead.



Sanaa: Officials say militants have targeted a border post between Yemen and Saudi Arabia in an attack that left two soldiers and three of the gunmen dead.

Yemen`s official news agency says a suicide car bomber struck the Yemeni side of the border post in the al-Wadia area yesterday, killing one Yemeni soldier and wounding another.

SABA says other gunmen then fled in two cars toward Saudi Arabia after border guards opened fire.
Saudi Interior Ministry spokesman Maj Gen Mansour al-Turki says that Saudi guards exchanged fire with gunmen in the same area, killing three of them and arresting another. He says a Saudi border guard commander was killed.

SABA linked the attack to al-Qaida, but weapons smugglers and human traffickers also are active in the area.
