Around 30 people were killed in two attacks on military targets in southern Yemen early on Friday, a local security source said.

Around 20 people were killed when two car bombs exploded at a military camp in al-Nashama inShabwa Province, the source said. Gunmen also killed around 10 members of a military patrol in the town of Mayfaa.

Officials believe members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) were behind the bomb attack, the source said.

A concealed bomb in one car exploded among a group of soldiers at the gate as the driver sought to enter the camp. The other was already inside the camp when it exploded, he added.

Shabwa Province, a lawless and rugged part of Yemen, has been the scene of much fighting in recent years between armed groups and the security forces.
