    Yemeni troops recaptured the military base near the city of Aden, according to local media.

    MOSCOW(Sputnik) — Yemeni troops drove extremists out of the military base near the city of Aden and regained control over it, local media reported on Wednesday, citing military base command.

    Six militants were killed during the operation, Sky News Arabia said.

    The media outlet cited the base commander as saying that the terrorists had been driven out of the facility.

    According to earlier reports, after two suicide bombers blew up cars laden with explosives, clashes erupted between the army and extremists near the military base, leaving seven people dead and over 20 injured.

    Reportedly, the attacks were orchestrated by extremists linked to the Al-Qaeda terror group, which is banned in Russia and many other countries.
