    A coordinated attack involving a suicide bomber and gunmen wearing army uniforms has left at least 52 people dead and 162 others injured at Yemen's Ministry of Defense. Immediately after a powerful car blast, armed men entered the government compound and fought with security forces. According to Yemen's Higher Security Committee, the victims were doctors and nurses. Security forces later regained control of the building, but no group has come forward yet to take credit for the attack.
