ADEN, Yemen, May 4 (Reuters) - A suicide car bomber killed six Yemeni soldiers in the restive southern Shabwa province on Sunday, a military source said, as government forces push ahead with an offensive to uproot al Qaeda militants from their strongholds.

The source told Reuters that 20 soldiers were also wounded in the attack. (Reporting by Mohammed Mukhashaf; Writing by Yara Bayoumy; Editing by Sami Aboudi)
