ISIS claims responsibility for Yemen attacks-agency

The force of the blast damaged civilian cars parked outside the camp and showered the street with debris.

Yemeni security officials said today that one explosion targeted an anti-terrorism military camp with detention facilities for suspected militants.

Security sources and medics said three security men, a woman and two children died in the attack, while 40 other people, many of them civilians, were wounded.

An Isis statement, carried by its Aamaq news agency, said two suicide bomb attacks had hit the anti-terrorism camp in Aden.

The attack on Saturday was claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) via the group's Amaq website.

Aden has recently witnessed suicide bombings and blasts that target security officials, and which are usually claimed by IS or al-Qaeda, who have exploited the conflict for their own aims.

It was the first attack of its kind since gunbattles erupted between southern separatists and the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi last month over control of the city.

The southern port city of Aden is considered as Yemen's temporary capital and the Saudi-backed Yemeni government has based itself there since 2015.

Photos surfaced following the explosion showing the charred vehicles and clouds of heavy smoke hovering over the area.

A police source said that the two explosions took place near the compound of the pro-secesssion Southern Transitional Council in Aden.

A Saudi Arabia-led military coalition intervened in support of Hadi in March 2015 against the Iran-allied Houthis, in a war that has killed more than 9,200 people and driven the country to the verge of starvation.

Experts said in a January report that they had identified Iranian missile remnants and other equipment introduced into Yemen after the 2015 arms embargo that were fired into Saudi Arabia.
