Yemen Suicide Blast, Drone Attack Kill At Least 30

A suspected suicide bomber has struck a town in the southern Yemeni province of Abyan, killing at least 25 people.

Medical and government sources said more than 20 other people were wounded in the August 4 attack on a funeral service in Jaar.

Reports said the bomber targeted tribesmen who had helped the army in their fight against Al-Qaeda.

In eastern Yemen, a suspected U.S. drone strike reportedly killed five members of Al-Qaeda travelling in a vehicle.

Officials said the attack happened near the village of Al-Qotn, in the province of Hadramut.
