Yemen: Terrorists Attack Presidential Palace, Kill 5 Guards

Suspected Al-Qaeda terrorists attacked Yemen's presidential palace on Friday, killing five guards and triggering a fierce gunfight as the jihadists hit back at an army offensive aimed at crushing them, AFP reported.

Yemen’s President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi was not at the palace in the capital when the gunmen attacked a checkpoint manned by guards outside the compound, a security source told the news agency.
