Car bombing at Yemen airport kills nine

Popular News

At least nine people have been killed in a car bombing near an airport in Yemen's temporary capital, Aden, reports BBC.

Another 12 people are believed to have been injured in Saturday's explosion - described as a "terrorist bombing" by Prime Minister Mueen Abdulmalek Saeed.

Eyewitnesses say women and children are among the casualties. So far, no one has claimed responsibility.

Local media note the attack coincided with the arrival of Aden's former governor at the airport. He is unhurt.

The current governor was himself a target of a car bombing three weeks ago which left another six people dead, news agency AFP reports.

Saturday's bombing is the deadliest attack in the city since at least 22 people were killed at the same airport last December.
