Yemen: Suicide bomber drives VBIED into army camp kills over 65

(Aden) A vehicle borne suicide bomb was driven this morning into the midst of Yemeni pro-government troops who had been preparing to travel to Saudi Arabia to fight Houthi rebels in Yemen’s north, officials said. The men were at a staging area near two schools and a mosque where they were registering to join the expedition. Resulting in the deaths of over 65 people, and injuring many more. Unfortunately the death toll is set to rise.

The Islamic State terrorist group has claimed the attack, via its media outlet Aamaq Agency.
