Al-Qaeda suspect kills 8 Yemen military hospital staff

A gunman shot dead eight members of staff from a military hospital in Yemen’s main southern city of Aden on Sunday, an army official told AFP, accusing Al-Qaeda.

The attacker opened fire with an assault rifle at an army minibus, “killing eight passengers, among them two women, and wounding 12 others,” the source said, adding that “the bus was carrying doctors and nurses working for the military hospital in Aden.”
