A series of bombs exploded, without casualties, outside a building used by intelligence services in Yemen’s Tawahi city in the Aden governorate, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

Fighters loyal to Hadi captured Aden from the Houthis and their allies, forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, in July after months of street battles and air strikes on the Houthis by a Saudi-led coalition.

The intelligence offices are located near the administration offices of Aden’s port and the radio and television building, the official said.

Explosive devices had been planted on the fence of surrounding the building, he said, which was severely damaged in the blasts. He gave no further details on the identity of the bombers.

There has been no claim of responsibility so far.
