AL-MUKALLA: Terrorists declared war on Yemen’s fledgling democratic government on Wednesday with a deadly attack on Aden airport as members of the new administration flew in from Riyadh.

At least 27 people were killed and 40 injured in a series of explosions just outside the airport’s main hall while the aircraft’s passengers were disembarking.

A local security source said the building was hit by three mortar shells, and Yemen’s information minister Muammar Al-Eryani accused Iran-backed Houthi militias of carrying out the attack.
