Soldier killed in central Yemen ambush



World Bulletin / News Desk

An army soldier was killed Sunday in an ambush in Yemen's central Al-Baydaa province, a local official has said.

"Unidentified militant set an ambush for a military patrol in the province," the official, requesting anonymity, told.

He said one soldier was killed in the attack, while the attackers fled the scene unscathed.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack.

Fractious Yemen has remained in the throes of turmoil since autocratic President Ali Abdullah Saleh stepped down in 2012 following a months-long popular uprising against his 33-year rule.
