KUWAIT CITY, June 30: Kuwait has condemned a car bomb attack on the convoy of a Yemeni military official in the southern city of Aden, which left scores of people either dead or injured. Kuwait will always remain vehemently opposed to “all forms of violence and terrorism,” a foreign ministry statement underlined, wishing a speedy recovery for those wounded in the attack. A car bomb targeting a top provincial security official in the southern Yemen city of Aden killed at least six people Wednesday and wounded eight others, Yemeni officials said.
A car carrying explosives detonated while the convoy of a security official from a neighboring province was driving by, the officials said. Three of his guards were wounded in the explosion. The officials said two security personnel died later from their wounds, bringing the death toll to at least six people, including four civilians. The top security official for Lahj province Brig. Gen. Saleh Sayed was not seriously hurt, added the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media. (Agencies)
