A deadly blast at the Aden airport in Yemen Wednesday killed at least 26 people and injured dozens. The attack came as a plane carrying members of a newly formed, Saudi-backed Cabinet was landing at the airport. Three International Red Cross workers and at least one journalist were killed. Yemeni officials blamed Houthi rebels, who denied they were responsible. Saudi air raids were launched in Houthi-controlled Sana’a following the blast.
On Friday, an explosion in the port city of Hodeidah killed five women at a wedding hall. Government and Houthi forces both blamed the other side for the attack.
