Three simultaneous suicide car bomb attacks by Al-Qaeda on army posts in southern Yemen and clashes that followed killed two soldiers and 10 militants on Sunday, an official said.

Dozens of jihadists had taken part in the dawn attacks that aimed to capture three army posts in Mahfad, in the restive province of Abyan, the military official said.

Two of the car bombs exploded before reaching their targets, while a third went off at the gate of a base, he added.
