A suicide car bomber targeting an army checkpoint in southern Yemen killed eight soldiers and wounded 10 on Monday, local officials said.

The attack in the town of Radda was likely a retaliatory move by al Qaeda militants after Yemeni forces shelled insurgents in the southern province of al-Bayda earlier in the day, an official said.
