    A planned military parade to mark Yemen's National Day went ahead in Yemen, despite a suicide attack during rehearsals for the celebration that left nearly 100 people dead.

    Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing in the centre of the Yemeni capital on Monday, saying that it was revenge for increased US drone strikes.

    Al Jazeera's Jane Ferguson, reporting from Sanaa, says that Tuesday's march was largely scaled down and held in a "secret" location.
