Army medics are killed in Yemen


Gunmen have killed seven army medics riding a bus in southern Yemen. The militants opened fire on the bus about 15km north of Aden while it was en route to the nearby Basaheeb military hospital. A woman was among the dead and another 11 people were wounded. Attacks against Yemen's security forces have increased since the army launched a campaign to dislodge al Qaeda militants.
