ADEN, Yemen, Gunmen suspected of belonging to the Yemen-based al-Qaida branch blew up a security headquarters in the southeastern province of Hadramout on Sunday evening, a government official said.

The new security building that is still under construction was detonated, causing two huge blasts that rocked Shibam district of Hadramout province, said the official based in Hadramout said on condition of anonymity.

The official said that the suspected al-Qaida militants used large quantities of explosives placed in different parts of the security building before the detonation, causing no casualties.

The al-Qaida militants launched a previous attack against the same security headquarters in mid-July 2014, killing many security personnel of the building.

The government-controlled southeastern province of Hadramout and other areas in Yemen are witnessing growing activities of extremist organizations that take advantage of the four-year-long conflict in the impoverished Arab country.
