A suicide car bomber attacked a checkpoint near a military base in southern Yemen on Wednesday, killing 25 soldiers, local security officials said.
The attack in Aden left eight others injured, according to three local security officials. It targeted a checkpoint outside the Al Solban military base.
After the bomb, a group of militants raided the base, leading to hours of clashes from within the facility. Dozens of rocket-propelled grenade rockets were launched at the base.
