Armed tribesmen and Al-Qaeda militants killed 13 soldiers and captured dozens of others in separate attacks in eastern Yemen on Friday, security and tribal sources said.

"Al-Qaeda militants ambushed a military patrol in Marib near Safer (oil fields) killing 11 soldiers," a security official in Sanaa said.

Also in Marib, two soldiers were killed, two wounded and 30 taken prisoner in a clash with tribesmen, said another security official and a tribal source. Six tribesmen were also wounded.
