Suicide car bomber targets Yemen army base, killing 5

Security officials say a suicide car bomber has targeted a military base in central Yemen, killing at least five troops.



Sanaa: Security officials say a suicide car bomber has targeted a military base in central Yemen, killing at least five troops.

 The officials say today's bombing struck the gates of the base in the province of Bayda, which has seen fierce clashes between Shiite Houthi rebels who last year overran the capital of Sanaa and al-Qaida militants allied with Sunni tribesmen.

 The officials say that elsewhere in Bayda, a senior Houthi member was killed. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to reporters.

 The Houthis' power grab has plunged Yemen into a deep political crisis.

 Also today, witnesses in Hodida province say Houthis opened fire there at an anti-rebel rally, wounding three protesters. The witnesses spoke on condition of anonymity fearing for their safety.
