Car bomb killed military commander in Aden
On Wednesday a car bomb rocked Yemen’s southern city of Aden killing a senior military official and at least four others, officials said.
The bombing targeted the convoy of Maj. Gen. Thabet Jawas, commander of the Al-Anad Axis in southern Yemen, said the officials.
Jawas was driving to his home in Aden after he attended the funeral of a relative in Laj province when the attack happened. A parked car exploded as his convoy passed near a fuel supply facility, the officials said.
The dead included Jawas, three guards and one of his relatives, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief media.
