Gunmen shot dead two Yemeni soldiers and wounded five others in an attack on a southern military checkpoint on Wednesday that was blamed on groups loyal to Al-Qaeda, a local official said.
The attack took place in Zinjibar, the capital of the southern Abyan province, where Al-Qaeda militants have been active. State control over Abyan has slipped during a three-month political standoff in Yemen over President Ali Abdullah Saleh's rule.
