Blast in Yemen kills 6 government troops, Saudi officer

Yemeni security officials said Wednesday an explosion targeting a government military convoy killed at least six Yemeni troops and one Saudi Arabian officer.


The blast took place in the eastern Hadramawt province, far from the part of Yemen controlled by the Houthi rebels, and also wounded at least 13 soldiers, many of them Saudi.


No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but al-Qaida's branch in Yemen has carried out similar attacks in the area.
