A suspected Al-Qaeda suicide bomber Sunday killed 12 soldiers and a civilian in an attack on a military base in southeast Yemen, officials said, as government forces pursued jihadists in three restive provinces.The attack killed 12 soldiers, the military source said, while a medic said civilian succumbed to wounds sustained in the explosion.Al-Qaeda has "dormant cells" in Sanaa, warned military analyst Mohsen Khosruf, arguing that the attacks on the presidential palace "aim to ease pressure on their comrades in the south".He said the army is likely to pursue its campaign in Baida, and Marib, east of Sanaa, where Al-Qaeda militants could have taken refuge following the south offensive.
