MARIB, March 27 (Saba) – Suspected al Qaeda militants attacked on Sunday a security checkpoint in Marib province killing three officers and three soldiers and injuring eight others, a security source said.

The attack at dawn, 6:00 am, targeted the Military Police checkpoint on Marib-Sana'a road and the perpetrators ran away, the source said, adding that a hunt was launched for them.

Several al Qaeda militants have been killed in the last few weeks in clashes with the security forces as the terrorists are trying to take advantage of the unrest spreading across Yemen.
