At least 10 people were killed Wednesday as explosions rocked Yemen’s Aden airport moments after a new unity government flew in, in what officials charged was a “cowardly” attack by Iran-backed Huthi rebels.
“Dozens” more people were wounded, a medical source told AFP, although all government ministers were reported to be unharmed.
Plumes of smoke billowed from the airport building in the southern city as debris lay strewn across the area, with people rushing to tend to the wounded, footage broadcast by Saudi television channel Al-Hadath showed.
“At least two explosions were heard as the cabinet members were leaving the aircraft,” an AFP correspondent at the scene said. #news
