Suicide Bomber kills 20 in Yemen

BEIJING, July 12 (Xinhuanet) -- A suicide bomber blew himself up among a crowd in front of a Yemeni police academy in the capital Sanaa on Wednesday, killing at least 20.

The Yemeni-based al-Qaida wing has reportedly claimed responsibility for the suicide attack on the police academy. It was the second such attack in less than two months.

The Yemeni government launched an all-out military operation in May against the al-Qaida group. However, the terrorist group vowed to target the capital Sanaa, where a number of deadly attacks have been carried out against high-level security and military personnel. Source
