ADEN (Reuters) - Gunmen killed around 10 soldiers in an attack on a military headquarters in the town of Mayfaa early on Friday in the southern Yemeni province of Shabwa, a security official said.
The gunmen later stole vehicles belonging to the security forces and escaped, local residents said.
Around 20 soldiers were killed in a separate attack in Shabwa on Friday morning.
