Yemeni government forces supported by a Saudi-led coalition recaptured army headquarters at Aden airport from suspected extremists after an hours-long firefight on Wednesday, the base commander said.The militants had penetrated the base after detonating two car bombs that killed at least 10 soldiers in the latest attack on security forces to hit the southern port city where Yemen's government took refuge after rebels seized the capital Sanaa.The base commander said coalition forces had assisted in the recapture of the headquarters building.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.
