Dozens of people have been killed or wounded in two suicide car bombings in the southern Yemeni port city of Aden, witnesses and local medics say.
Saturday’s attack occurred outside the gate of a counter terrorism camp in the city’s southwest, according to the witnesses.
The sources said the blasts caused civilian and military casualties.
Officials at Aden’s main Jumhouriya hospital said the bodies of five victims, most of them soldiers, had arrived at the facility, along with a number of injured people including civilians, but gave no precise figures.
The attack on Saturday was claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) via the group’s Amaq website.
