Suicide Bombing Kills 25 Police Recruits In Yemen

At least 25 people, reportedly police recruits, have been killed, following a suicide bombing, by Islamic State militants, at a police base in Yemen.

A suicide attack, claimed by Islamic State militants, has killed at least 25 people in southern Yemen.

Officials say the bomber detonated his explosives outside a police base in the port city of Mukalla, killing recruits as they queued up outside the building.

Islamic State’s jihadist rival, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), was forced out of Mukalla last month by a Saudi-led military coalition.

The conflict in Yemen has displaced as many as two million people since 2011.

Hospitals in Mukalla were also treating at least 25 people wounded in the attack, reports said.
