A suicide attack on an army-training center in Aden, Southern Yemen, has caused at least 60 victims. According to a source, a car bomb exploded near a crowd of recruits in front of a school in the north of the city. The number of victims, explained the witness, may increase.
The pro-government troops were preparing to leave for Saudi Arabia to fight on the northern border area of Yemen. The attack, which has been powerful, has also caused 60 injured. The victims were enrolling in the mission (managed by Saudi Arabia and aiming to train about 5,000 fighters) in an area close to two schools and a mosque.
For years, Yemen has been the scene of a civil war between a government recognized by the international community and supported by an international coalition led by the Saudis, and the rebels and army units loyal to the former president.
