Yemini government troops shot and killed suspected al-Qaeda militants who were disguised in veils, near the border with Saudi Arabia, media reports said.
According to officials, one militant opened fire on a security officer checking their vehicle after which the soldiers retaliated. The number of militants killed is reported to have been between three and five.
The al-Qaeda’s branch in Yemen is considered by western security experts to be the militant group’s deadliest offshoot in the world.
