Suspected extremists seized the army headquarters at Aden airport on Wednesday after killing at least 10 soldiers at the base in Yemen's second city, home to the country's Saudi-backed government.Security forces in the southern port city, where Yemen's government has taken refuge after rebels seized the capital Sanaa, have come under repeated attack from both the ISIS group and its extremist rival Al-Qaeda.On Friday, a similar drone attack in Shabwa killed four suspected extremists.Emirati and Saudi special forces helped government forces to recapture the southeastern city of Mukalla from Al-Qaeda in April ending a year of extremist rule.But in Mukalla too, the government has struggled to secure the city and there have been repeated deadly reprisal bombings by the extremists.
