At least 30 people have died and many others are injured after a suicide bomber detonated a car bomb outside a large police academy in Sana’a, the capital city of Sana’a.
The vehicle exploded beside dozens of cadets and people standing in line to enrol at the academy. Reports have said it was a suicide attack. Afterwards, body parts and debris from the car were strewn across the street.
There has so far been no claim of responsibility, but an offshoot of al-Qaeda has carried out similar attacks.
Yemen has experienced a wave of violence in recent months, with militants from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) battling Shia Houthi rebels who have taken control of the capital.
Wednesday’s bombing took place early in the morning in a central part of Sana’a near the central bank and the defence ministry building.
