By Mohammed Ghobari SANAA (Reuters) - A suicide bomber and gunmen wearing army uniforms attacked Yemen's Defense Ministry compound in the capital Sanaa on Thursday, killing at least 20, including foreign medical staff, sources said, in the worst single attack in Yemen in 18 months. No one claimed responsibility for the attack, but a Yemeni expert on Islamist militant affairs said the "suicide nature of the attack" pointed to al Qaeda. Yemen has been grappling with al Qaeda-linked militants who have repeatedly attacked government officials and installations over the past two years. The U.S.-allied country shares a long border with Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, and the branch of al Qaeda that is based there has plotted attacks against Western targets.
