A suicide bomber rammed an explosives-packed car into the Yemeni defence ministry complex Thursday, allowing gunmen to launch an assault which killed 25 people including three foreign doctors, officials said. They were at a hospital within the ministry complex 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. The ministry said gunmen occupied the hospital after the explosion, but that security forces had regained control of the building.
