Al-Qaeda attack kills 3 policemen in south Yemen

Suspected Al-Qaeda gunmen killed three policemen in an attack Sunday on a checkpoint at the entrance to the southern town of Seyoun, a Yemeni security official said.

"Armed men, probably members of Al-Qaeda, opened fire on the checkpoint," killing three and wounding two others, the official said.

The assailants managed to escape in a car.

Al-Qaeda militants have stepped up attacks on security forces from strongholds in south and southeast Yemen.
