Yemeni party demands probe into soldiers' killing

World Bulletin / News Desk

An Islamist party on Monday called on for an investigation into the killing of 20 Yemeni soldiers in an attack in the southern province of Hadhramaut.

"The people who committed this crime have nothing to do with human or religious values," the Yemeni Congregation for Reform Party said in a statement.

Twenty Yemeni soldiers were killed in an attack on a checkpoint in Hadhramaut earlier on Monday.

Yemeni Interior Minister Abdo al-Tareb sacked several Hadhramaut security officials after the attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for attack, but a security official blamed Al-Qaeda for the killings.

Yemen has struggled to maintain law and order since the ouster of autocrat Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2012.
