    A suicide bomber reportedly disguised as a soldier struck in Yemen on Monday, killing 96 people and injuring at least 200 others. A group with ties to al Qaeda has climb responsibility for the bombing that struck a group of soldiers gathered near the presidential palace in the capital. The soldiers were preparing for a military parade organized in honor of a national holiday to be celebrated Tuesday. Hundreds of bystanders were wounded, and first responders rushed to the scene to take away the wounded. Yemeni forces launched an attack less than two weeks ago against Islamic radicals with ties to al Qaeda in one of the country’s southern provinces.
