Qaeda suspects hit Yemen security in twin suicide attacksSuspected Al-Qaeda militants staged twin suicide bombings and took hostages Sunday in Aden, officials said, striking at the heart of the Yemeni government after suffering a string of setbacks. Six security officers were killed in the attacks on the security headquarters and criminal investigations unit in the central district of Khor Maksar in Aden, where the internationally recognised government is based. A high-ranking official with the state security forces said an explosives-rigged car driven by an Al-Qaeda operative blew up outside the security headquarters, killing the six officers along with the driver.
