IS car bomb kills 10 in Yemen
Aden, Yemen - The Islamic State (IS) group claimed responsibility for a car bombing that security sources said killed ten people, including civilians, at a security post in Yemen’s government bastion of Aden on Tuesday.
The terror group claimed the attack in the southern port city via the encrypted messaging app Telegram, adding that a Yemeni suicide bomber had detonated the vehicle.
Aden’s security chief said, “Eight members of the security forces and two civilians were killed in a car bombing in the central district of Abdul Aziz.”
“There are a large number of wounded, some of them in serious condition,” Brigadier Shalal Shaya said. Witnesses said they heard a loud explosion followed by gunfire at the main office of UAE-trained security forces in charge of guarding state-owned facilities. The United Arab Emirates, which has trained government forces in southern Yemen, is a key member of a Saudi-led military coalition.
