Suicide bomber kills 18 in southern Yemen village

(Reuters) - A suicide bomber killed at least 18 tribal fighters when he blew himself up in the midst of a funeral in a village in Yemen's southern province of Abyan on Saturday, officials and residents said.

The bomber targeted tribesmen who sided with the Yemeni army during an offensive against Islamist militants that the government hailed as a major victory in June. Source
