Death toll in terrorist attack rises to 16 in Yemen's Aden

The death toll in an al-Qaida terrorist attack against an army headquarters in Yemen's southern port city of Aden on Wednesday has risen to 16, including five soldiers, a government official and medics told Xinhua.

"Two coordinated attacks that targeted the headquarters of the Fourth Military Region in Aden this morning has killed 16 people and injured dozens of others including civilians and passers-by," the government official said, requesting anonymity.

Fierce clashes that followed the attack left about six al-Qaida members, five soldiers and five civilians killed, including women and children, the source said.

Local medics confirmed the casualties to Xinhua, saying " several injured soldiers who are in critical conditions have been evacuated for medical treatment to the Yemeni capital Sanaa while the others are in hospitals in Aden."

Scores of masked attackers from the al-Qaida group stormed the army headquarters in the coastal district of Tawahi, army officers said.

"We heard a huge blast and heavy gunshots and immediately they started shooting at us. Those who attempted to escape were shot from behind. Heavy fighting erupted inside and around the army base," an army officer told Xinhua.

A police officer in Aden said the al-Qaida gunmen entered the army base through the rear door, and spread bullets and rocket propelled grenades at the main gate during the morning service.

The army headquarters was sealed off by armored vehicles and heavy reinforcements from special security forces in Aden as criminal police officers were searching for evidence.

Earlier in the day, a police source said that gunmen suspected to be al-Qaida members invaded the headquarters of the Fourth Military region in Aden.

He said about five soldiers including high-ranking military personnel were confirmed died in the bloody attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for the armed attack against the military base in Aden and Yemeni government authorities have yet to comment.

Last month, al-Qaida militants killed 24 Yemeni soldiers of the Special Forces in an attack on a military barracks in the southeast province of Hadramout.

Militants of the Yemen-based al-Qaida offshoot were blamed by the country's government for a series of assassinations and armed attacks, mostly in the country's southern regions.

The al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which emerged in January 2009, is considered the most strategic threat to the Yemeni government and neighboring oil-rich Saudi Arabia.

相关新闻:也门政府官员2日说,一伙“基地”组织武装分子当天攻击位于也门南部亚丁省省会亚丁市的政府军总部,造成16人死亡。

一名不愿透露姓名的政府官员告诉新华社记者:“一伙‘基地’组织武装分子2日突袭了位于亚丁市的第四军区指挥部,目前已造成16人死亡,数十人受伤,死者中有多名平民。”他说,“基地”组织武装分子和守卫指挥部的卫兵激烈交火,至少6名武装分子、5名士兵和5名平民在交火中死亡,死亡的平民中有妇女和儿童。

一名第四军区指挥官证实第四军区的指挥部遭袭击,“我们听见巨大的爆炸声和连续的枪声,随后驻守在指挥部门口的士兵与武装分子发生激烈交火”。

亚丁市医院的医生告诉记者,多名受伤士兵伤势严重,已被送往首都萨那接受治疗。

据悉,通往该指挥部的道路已被封锁,也门政府已派特别安全部队前往该指挥部展开调查。目前尚无组织宣布此次袭击事件是其所为。

长期盘踞也门南部地区的“基地”组织阿拉伯半岛分支于2009年由“基地”组织位于沙特和也门的分支合并组成,之后一直与政府军进行对抗。今年3月24日,也门东部哈德拉毛省一处政府军军营遭到“基地”组织武装分子袭击,造成24名政府军士兵死亡、1人重伤。(新华网)
