3 Pro-Government Militiamen Killed in Yemen
[Yemen Post] At least three pro-government Islamic fascisti were killed and five others injured after an Al-Qaeda jacket wallah went kaboom!" inside a government office in Yemen's southern province of Abyan
...a governorate of Yemen. The region was a base to the Aden-Abyan Islamic Army terrorist group until it dropped the name and joined al-Qaeda. Its capital is Zinjibar. In March 2011, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula declared the governate an Islamic Emirate after seizing control of the region. The New York Times fastidiously reported that those in control, while Islamic hard boyz, are not in fact al-Qaeda, but something else that looks, tastes, smells, and acts the same. Yemeni government forces launched an effort to re-establish control of the region when President-for-Life Saleh was tossed and the carnage continues...
on Friday, state media said.

The September 26 website quoted locals in the capital Zinjibar of Abyan as saying the bomber detonated his boom belt in the old local government office targeting the members of the pro-government popular resistance committees.

"Three were killed immediately and five others were critically hurt," they said.

Since the Yemeni army launched a US-backed offensive and drove Al-Qaeda cut-throats out of their strongholds in Abyan and Shabwa provinces earlier this year, cut-throats of AQAP and its offshoot, the Ansar Al-Sharia, have been carrying out sporadic deadly suicide kabooms targeting military and security commanders and pro-government militias.

The bombings have been reported in Abyan and other main cities including the capital Sanaa which saw the deadliest ever suicide kabooms this year.

Today's attack comes as many families of those which were displaced by the battles last year have started to return to their homes and villages in Abyan.

In addition to Al-Qaeda attacks, kabooms of landmines, which were planted by orcs, have killed scores of civilians and troops.
