At least 60 people have been killed in a suicide bombing in Yemen’s southern Aden city on Monday.
A bomber rammed his explosives-laden vehicle into a building of pro-government forces in northern Aden as they were having their breakfast, a source with pro-government forces told Anadolu Agency.
Another 60 are reported to be injured.
A source with told Reuters that at least 45 dead bodies have been transferred to hospitals. The death toll to rise as many of the injured are in a critical condition.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack. However, attacks in Aden are often claimed by jihadists from either Al-Qaeda or the Daesh group. Both have taken advantage of the violence in Yemen to make gains in southern and southeastern regions.
Yemen has been ravaged by civil war since late 2014, when Houthi rebels overran capital Sanaa and a number of other provinces, forcing the government of President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi into exile.
The UN says more than 6,600 people, mainly civilians, have been killed in the fighting.
Some 2.5 million Yemenis have also been displaced.
