Yemen: suicide attack kills 26, including 16 students

(Vatican Radio) A pair of suicide car bombers rammed their vehicles into a Shiite rebels' checkpoint and a house south of the Yemeni capital Tuesday as a school bus was traveling nearby. The attacks killed at least 26 people, including as many as 16 primary school students. Witness reports say theĀ first car was loaded with potatoes apparently disguising explosives underneath. When the bomber arrived at the checkpoint, he detonated the device in the vehicle as the students' bus was passing. Following the initial explosion, a second car targeted the home of a Shiite rebel leader, Abdullah Idris.
