The blast occurred amid an escalating diplomatic row between Lebanon and Gulf nations over remarks made by a Lebanese minister, who condemned the Saudi-led coalition's campaign in Yemen, and called the year-long war in the country pointless.
A powerful blast has ripped through the Yemeni city of Aden, after a car bomb exploded at the gates of Aden International Airport, a local source told Sputnik.
The exact number of casualties is unclear: a security source told Sputnik that six people have died and 12 have been injured, while AP cited Yemeni officials as saying that the blast has left at least eight dead and 11 wounded.
Reuters cited a security source as saying that the blast targeted a security checkpoint near an airport hotel.
Photos and videos showing reddish plume of smoke - allegedly from Saturday's blast - have emerged online.
