• 14 dead in Aden suicide bombing claimed by ISIS


    ADEN: A suicide bomber killed at least 14 soldiers in Aden on Wednesday, in the latest attack on Yemen’s second city claimed by jihadists of the Islamic State group.

    The southern port city has been the headquarters of forces loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and his backers in a Saudi-led military coalition but has seen growing violence by IS and its jihadist rival Al-Qaeda. The bomber, who was disguised as a soldier, attacked the Ras Abbas camp in the west of Aden. The little-known “Aden and Abyan Province” branch of IS said the suicide bombing was carried out by one of its militants and alleged it killed 20 “apostate” soldiers.
