Aden: A suicide car bombing at a military intelligence headquarters in southern Yemen on Tuesday killed one person and wounded a dozen others, an official said.

The attacker detonated the explosives-packed car outside the gate to the security building in Tuban, 15 kilometres north of the southern city of Aden, seriously damaging the facility, according to the official.

“It seems Al Qaida is behind the attack,” he said.

Yemen has seen regular attacks on its security forces usually blamed on Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which remains active in the south and east despite several military campaigns to crush the group.

Three suspected Al Qaida militants, one a Saudi national, were killed on Sunday in the southern province of Shabwa when a car bomb they were preparing apparently detonated by accident.
