Yemen: 40 killed and wounded in carbomb blast at police college in Sanaa
A car bomb exploded outside a police college in Yemen’s capital Sanaa early on Wednesday, killing around 40 people and wounding more than 50 others, police sources and residents said.
Security in Yemen has diminished since a 2011 popular uprising that led to a change of government and splits in the army. Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), one of the movement’s most active wings, has staged a growing number of bombings and shootings across the country.
The victims from Wednesday’s blast included students at the college and people waiting in line to enroll with the police, the police sources said, as well as passers by.
