SANA'A- At least one person was killed and four others were wounded when a blast blow up in the Yemeni capital of Sana'a.
Sources said that a bomb bag was planted at al-Waheda marketing, killing at least one and wounded four others. No one claims its responsibility.
No more details were reported.
Today's blast is the sixth attempt by al-Qaeda after the Yemeni army’s lighting campaign forced Al-Qaeda from its strongholds in the south of the country, AQAP is striking at the heart of the government. Assaults in Sana’a are on the rise. In the space of less than two months, five bombings have been attempted by Al-Qaeda-affiliates.
The first was Saba’een Street. Weeks later, a bomber wearing an explosive belt panicked moments before blowing himself up in a post office, throwing his belt over a wall and fleeing. Early this month, Colonel Mohammed Al-Qudami of Yemen’s Political Security was killed by a car bomb as he drove through the capital. Two days later a Sana’a police chief, Saleh Al-Mustafa, watched his car explode minutes after getting out. The police academy is only the latest target in a wave of attacks Al-Qaeda has vowed to keep up.
