Four Yemeni soldiers were killed Thursday in a suspected al-Qaeda attack on a military camp in Yemen's southern Hadhramaut province, a security source said.

"Gunmen believed to belong to al-Qaeda group attacked a military camp in al-Abr district on border with Saudi Arabia," the source told Anadolu Agency.

Four soldiers were killed and several others injured in the attack, the source said.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack.

Yemen has been dogged by turmoil since pro-democracy protests forced autocratic president Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down in 2012 after 33 years in power.

In recent months, scores of security personnel have been killed in attacks across the country that officials blame on suspected al-Qaeda-linked militants.

Seperately, armed tribesmen detonated an oil pipeline in Yemen's eastern Ma'rib province on Thursday, a security source said.

The tribesmen blew up the main export pipeline in Ridan oilfield, the source, requesting anonymity, told Anadolu Agency.

According to the source, a military force has rushed to the scene to hunt down the perpetrators and secure the pipeline's reoperation.
