SABA news reports that at least 20 people were wounded in a motorbike bomb explosion in northwest Yemen on Saturday.

According to a security source, the bombing happened at a busy souk in the Hajjah province, a coastal area northwest of the country's capital, Sanaa.

Six children and at least one woman were among the wounded. There are no reports of causalities at this time.

Local popular committees and security forces responded to the scene. The wounded were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. 

No organization has claimed responsibility for the attack. Daesh and al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula have conducted multiple car bombings in southwest Yemen in recent months.
