Car bombing kills 18 in southern Yemen

At least 18 people have died after a car bombing in Aden, in southern Yemen.

Monday’s blast targeted a school where army recruits were gathering in Al Mansoura, which lies north of Aden, a security source told DPA.

Thirty other people were also wounded in the blast, the source added. So far, there has been no claim of responsibility.

The source said that most of the recruits were from the southern province of Abyan.

Aden, Yemen’s second city and a base for the Saudi-based government, has been witnessing for months a series of assassinations and blasts against the army and police forces.

Previous similar attacks has been claimed by Islamic State.
