10 killed in Aden car bomb attack

ADEN: Daesh claimed responsibility for a car bombing that security sources said killed 10 people, including civilians, at a security post in Yemen’s government bastion of Aden on Tuesday. The militant 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 told AFP: “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, attributing the blast to a car bomb. Witnesses earlier told AFP 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 Zayed bin Sultan mosque, which is located near the security office and funded by the United Arab Emirates, was also damaged in the attack.–AFP
