A suicide car bombing killed at least eight people at a checkpoint outside Yemen’s presidential palace in the southern city of Aden on Thursday, security and medical officials said.
The dead included soldiers and civilians and at least 12 others were wounded, a medical source said.
A security source said the attack appeared to target the convoy of a local businessman who was entering the presidential complex.
Sources had initially said the convoy was carrying Aden’s governor, Aidarus al-Zubaidi, but he later told AFP he was not in the area at the time of the attack.
