Yemeni missile targets new government, kills 26

At least 26 people were killed and more than 60 injured by an attack on the airport in the city of Aden that was targeting members of the newly formed government.

Aid workers and officials were among the casualties of the December 30th attack. But the prime minister, Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed, said he and his cabinet were “fine”.

Video footage of Wednesday’s incident showed that there was a large blast as passengers began leaving the plane that had flown the new cabinet to Aden from Saudi Arabia.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

In August 2019, 36 people were killed in a Houthi missile attack on a military parade in Aden.
