Dozens dead in attack on Yemen capital: sources

SANAA: A car bomb in front of a police academy in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa killed dozens of people on Wednesday, security and hospital officials said.

The attack took place as several people gathered in front of the building for a police recruitment event, according to security sources.

The blast in the capital came days after a bomb wounded six Shiite militiamen in Sanaa on Monday, while four people including a reporter were killed on Sunday in the mainly Shiite city of Dhamar.

Yemen has been dogged by instability since an uprising forced longtime strongman Ali Abdullah Saleh from power in 2012, with Huthi rebels and Al-Qaeda’s franchise in the country seeking to fill the power vacuum. (AFP)
