A suicide bomber rammed an explosives-packed car into Yemen's defence ministry complex Thursday, allowing gunmen to launch an assault which killed 25 people including three foreign doctors, officials said. "At least 25 people have been killed," a security official said shortly after the defence ministry had put the death toll at 20. They were at a hospital within the ministry's complex, and which bore the brunt of the attack. "A car bomb driven by a suicide bomber forced its way into the western entrance of the ministry complex," a security official told AFP.
