Four Yemeni soldiers were killed in an ambush when militants opened fire at an army vehicle Monday, AFP reports. The attack took place in Yemen's Hadramawt province. 

Officials suspect the assailants are members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP); one of al-Qaeda’s most deadly affiliates. AQAP is active in Yemen, taking advantage of instability that arose from the overthrow of President Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2011.
