Suicide Bomber in Yemen's Aden Kills 25 Government Fighters

Monday, 29 August 2016 04:08 AM

SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Yemeni security officials say a suicide attacker set off a massive car bomb in the southern city of Aden, killing 25 pro-government troops who had been preparing to travel to Saudi Arabia to fight in Yemen's northern border area.

They say the Monday attack left over 60 wounded, who have been taken to three area hospitals. The men had been at a staging area near two schools and a mosque where they were registering to join the expedition, which the Saudis seek to build up to 5,000 men who will also receive training.

Yemen is embroiled in a civil war pitting the internationally recognized government and a Saudi-led coalition against the rebels and army units loyal to a former president.
