Yemen: Car bomb targets military intelligence building in port city of Aden, kills at least 1


ADEN, Yemen — Yemeni officials say a car bombing has targeted the military intelligence department in the southern port city of Aden, killing at least one person.

Military and security officials say the parked car was detonated by remote control and exploded just outside the department building in the city's Sabr area on Tuesday.

The officials say at least 13 people, both passers-by outside and troops inside the building, were wounded. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

The front of the facade of the two-story building was badly damaged while several nearby buildings also sustained minor damage.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but it had all the hallmarks of Yemen's al-Qaida branch, considered by the U.S. to be the network's most dangerous offshoot.
