Blast hits air force bus in Yemen’s capital, causing casualties

A bomb tore through the side of a bus carrying Yemeni air force personnel to their base in the capital Sanaa on Sunday, killing at least one officer and wounding several others, state media reported.

Witnesses told Reuters that as many as six people died when the device, planted on the vehicle, exploded and blew passengers’ bodies into the street, but that higher toll could not be immediately confirmed.

There are no further details on who could be responsible for the attack.

In May 2012, a bomber in an army uniform blew himself up and killed more than 90 soldiers rehearsing for a parade in Sana’a.
