Twin sui­cide bomb­ings hit Aden base

Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

At least 10 Ye­meni sol­diers have been killed in a twin sui­cide car bomb at­tack on a se­cu­rity fa­cil­ity near Aden’s air­port, se­cu­rity sources say. Gun­men also stormed the Cen­tral Se­cu­rity head­quar­ters in Khor­mak­sar district of the south­ern port city, spark­ing fierce clashes.

No group has said it was re­spon­si­ble, but Is­lamic State and al-Qaeda have car­ried out sim­i­lar at­tacks be­fore. Aden is serv­ing as the home of Ye­men’s gov­ern­ment.

Pro-gov­ern­ment forces and troops from a Saudi-led multi­na­tional coali­tion forces are seek­ing to re­take the cap­i­tal, Sanaa, from Houthi rebels.
