Car Bomb in Yemen’s Aden Leaves 4 Dead

SANA’A – At least four people were killed after a car bomb exploded in the southern Yemeni city of Aden, eyewitnesses told EFE on Wednesday, in an attack claimed by the Islamic State.

The explosion, which damaged the four-story building’s facade, was carried out in the early hours of the morning outside the Yemeni Ministry of Finance’s headquarters in the district of Khormaksar in the southern part of Aden, the provisional headquarters of Yemen’s internationally-recognized government.

The Islamic State terror organization took responsibility for the attack in a statement issued by the militant-linked news agency Amaq.

Yemen has been the epicenter of a civil war between Houthi rebels, who currently control the capital Sana’a, and forces loyal to President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who have been backed by the Saudi-led Arab coalition since 2015.

Terror organizations like al-Qaeda and the Islamic State took advantage of the war-torn conditions in Yemen, seizing strategic areas.

The Yemeni government moved its capital to the coastal city of Aden in September 2014.
