A suicide bomber killed 45 people at a funeral wake in Yemen's southern city of Jaar on Saturday. It was the deadliest attack since the army declared victory over Islamist militants in June. The bombing highlighted the threat of Islamist militancy in Yemen and "may alarm the United States and Saudi Arabia, which increasingly view the impoverished state as a front line in their war on al-Qaeda and its affiliates."
