Islamic State Claims Suicide Bombing Attack That Kills 60 Army Recruits In Yemen

New York Times: Suicide Attack Kills Scores of Military Recruits in Aden, Yemen

CAIRO — A powerful car bomb rocked the southern port city of Aden, Yemen, on Monday morning, killing at least 54 young military recruits who were preparing to join government forces and wounding scores, officials said.

The explosion took place in the crowded Mansoura neighborhood around 8:15 a.m., a time when many people were outside commuting to work, officials said. Mansoura has been the site of multiple attacks by militants in the past year.

The Islamic State, through its Amaq News Agency, called the attack a “martyrdom operation” and said it killed “around 60 people.”

The terrorist group and the Yemen branch of Al Qaeda have exploited the chaos of the country’s long-running civil war to exercise control in certain areas, especially in the south.
