Bombing in Yemen’s Taiz Kills Five, Injures Ten

Written by NY Staff

 

A bomb explosion has struck a district in the southwestern Yemeni province of Taiz, leaving five people dead and 10 others wounded.

The casualties came after a bomber set off his explosives in a market in the neighborhood of Sharab al-Rawnah on Thursday.

No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the incident, but al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and Daesh have occasionally carried out attacks in the region.

Militant groups have taken advantage of the chaos and breakdown of security in Yemen to tighten their grip on the southern parts of the Arab country.

More than 11,400 Yemenis, including women and children, have been killed in the Saudi military aggression, according to a latest tally by a Yemeni monitoring group.
