Yemen explosion hits military bus, wounds 13

04 February 2014, 12:11

Sanaa - A bomb planted on a military bus exploded on Tuesday in the Yemeni capital, wounding 13 passengers, a day after multiple blasts rocked Sanaa, a military official said.

The explosion targeted a bus transporting soldiers and officers in the southern Dar Salam neighbourhood, the official said, adding that four of the wounded were in critical condition.

The attack is the latest in a series of bombs and shootings targeting military personnel in Yemen, which is struggling to achieve a political transition that aims to turn the republic into a federation.

The bombing also comes a day after rockets and explosions shook the capital, including one near the French embassy.

Attacks on military personnel are usually blamed on al-Qaeda, whose Yemen branch is one of the most active affiliates of the global jihadist network.
