At least two Yemeni soldiers and ten terrorists were killed during the attack by the militants of the terrorist group al-Qaeda on a military base, located near the South-Eastern city Budd.
Gunmen burst through the gates, using two car bombs and then opened fire. However, the attack was repulsed with heavy losses for the attackers. Some of them managed to escape, the army scouring the surrounding farms.
Operating in Yemen, «al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula» is considered the most radical branch of the group. She took advantage of a civil war between Sunnis and Shiites, to expand the controlled territory to the East of the country.
