At least nine people have been killed after a suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden car into a tourist convoy in Yemen.
Seven Spanish tourists and at least two Yemenis died in the blast at the Queen of Sheba temple in Marib.

About seven others were injured in the attack which the Spanish foreign minister said he "totally condemned".

Yemen has faced continuing unrest in recent years, which the government often blames on al-Qaeda operatives.

An interior ministry official was quoted by the country's state news agency as saying that the attack appeared to have been carried out by al-Qaeda.

"Preliminary information indicates that the al-Qaeda organisation is behind the cowardly attack," the official told the Saba news agency.

Witnesses said a vehicle entered a gate at the site, known in Yemen by its Arabic name Balqis, before it ploughed into the convoy of tourist cars and exploded.

The victims were reported to belong to a group of around 14 Spanish tourists visiting the site, some 170km (110 miles) east of the capital, Sanaa.

Witnesses said the bomb went off at around 1800 (1500 GMT) on Monday as the visitors were finishing a tour of the temple, built 3,000 years ago at the time of the Queen of Sheba.

In recent year's Yemen's government has been fighting Islamists with the help of US special forces based in Djibouti, on the Horn of Africa.

Al-Qaeda has demanded the release of militants jailed in the country.

And they carried this under the name of "Islam" ??

They are not Muslims

Because a Muslim is a person who follows all the Islamic principles.

And Islam itself means peace. ( and also means "submission " )

its strange how we find it clear that such attacks are wrong ,but at the same time seem not to be sure its killing when its done by official armies, and by the thousands, just because someone calls the killing a war for democracy or war on terrorism or anything :bash:

They are Muslims it's just that they don't practice Islam properly

but anyway this is a tragedy and may all victims rest in peace
No, you're wrong .

A Muslim is a person who follows the teaching of Islam as what stated in Holy Koran and what has been told by Prophet.

Those who were "born" as "Muslims" but do not follow or have no intentions to follow the teaching of Islam , cannot be considered as Muslim.

And Islam is a peaceful and very progressive way of life as guided by God .

It depends if those armies are intentionally targeting civilians to get a point through. Armies do kill civilians but their main intention is not killing civilians, that's the major difference between the two. I haven't heard of armies blowing up tourist resorts especially in a way where there are maximum tourists so as to maximise the civilian death toll, have you?

What's wrong with you, those fanatics killed a group of innocent tourists, don't you dare to mix politics with this, and of course those attacks are CLEARLY wrong! Nobody's talking here about wars and armies, and those people had nothing to do with any war, they were civilians, they were tourists!
