More than 100 Yemeni soldiers have been killed in clashes with suspected Al-Qaeda gunmen after the extremists attacked military positions in Yemen's restive south, medics said on Monday. Sunday's assault was one of the single deadliest against Yemeni troops.


Meanwhile, gunmen disguised as police raided checkpoints and homes in western Iraq on Monday, killing at least 27 members of the security forces, the police said.
Mohammed Fathi, spok­esman for the governor of Anbar province in Iraq, said the attack bore the "fingerprints of al Qaeda".
