Death toll from Yemen funeral bombing rises to 46 (2)

It also threatened to launch further attacks on security officials and military bases across the country.

Local residents told Xinhua anonymously that "an al-Qaida attacker apparently disguised himself as a guest and blew himself up at the entrance of the hall, where prominent tribal chiefs were welcoming guests at the funeral in Jaar town."

Backed by the United States, the Yemeni government waged a month-long intensive offensive in May against hundreds of al-Qaida militants, driving them out of strongholds they had controlled for nearly a year.

Combating al-Qaida militants in the restive south is one of the challenges confronting Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who has promised to restore security and uproot the country's branch of al-Qaida.
