Dozens Killed as Two Attacks Rattle Yemen’s Port City of Aden

HeadlineAug 02, 2019

In Yemen, dozens of people were killed Thursday in two separate attacks in the southern port city of Aden. In the first attack, suicide bombers targeted a police station, killing 11 people. The self-proclaimed Islamic State’s affiliate in Yemen later claimed responsibility. Later, in a separate attack, Houthi rebels fired a missile into a military parade, killing at least 40 government troops. The aid group Save the Children says the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war in Yemen has sparked a food crisis that’s led as many as 85,000 children to starve to death since fighting began in 2015.
