DUBAI (Sputnik) According to the 7adramout.net news portal, the attack occurred in the port of Al Hudaydah, which is currently under control of the Houthi rebels. The death toll estimates are preliminary and the numbers could rise, as at least 50 people have reportedly been severely injured.

Yemen has been engulfed in a military conflict between the government headed by Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the Houthi rebels, the country’s main opposition force. The Houthis are backed by army units loyal to former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Since March 2015, the Saudi-led coalition of mostly Persian Gulf countries has been carrying out airstrikes against the Houthis at Hadi's request despite a ceasefire agreed shortly before.
