    Six people were killed and 10 others were injured in a suicide attack on a military camp in the Lahij province in southern Yemen, a source in the law enforcement told Sputnik.

    SANAA (Sputnik) – According to the source, the camp belonged to the forces loyal to President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

    Earlier in the day, local media reported that suicide bombers had staged a terrorist attack at a military camp using two cars packed with explosives.

    Yemen has been engulfed in a military conflict between the government and the Houthi opposition movement, who have been supported by army units loyal to former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The Daesh terrorist group, which is outlawed in many countries including Russia, is also active in the conflict-torn country.
