Sanaa: Suspected al Qaeda-linked gunmen attacked Yemen's presidential palace on Friday and tried to kill the Defence Minister in his car, selecting high profile targets in apparent reprisal for the Army's biggest push against militants in nearly two years. Four soldiers were killed in a gun battle of up to an hour that broke out when militants attacked the main gate of the palace in the capital Sanaa, a security source said.
