Yemen’s Deposed PM Unhurt in Rocket Attack

Yemen’s deposed prime minister Khaled Bahah escaped unharmed Tuesday after a rocket attack killed and wounded an unknown number of people at a hotel in the southern city of Aden, a minister said.
“Bahah is in good health and was not harmed,” said Nayef al-Bakri, the minister of youth and sports.
A security source and witnesses said the building had been hit by two rockets, AFP reported.
People had been left “dead and wounded” by the attack, a local official said on condition of anonymity, without saying if that included any member of government.
He said one of the rockets hit the hotel’s main entrance and that a third rocket fired at the building had missed and landed in the sea.
Bahah and his ministers have been installed in Aden after spending six months in exile in Saudi Arabia.
Columns of smoke were rising from the Al-Qasr Hotel in the city’s western suburbs on Tuesday morning.
Ambulances and armed forces were on the scene, witnesses said.
A separate rocket attack targeted a nearby barracks used by pro-Hadi forces, residents said, but failed to hit its target.
Al-Qasr Hotel has been the headquarters of fugitive president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi since his return to Yemen.
The hotel has been guarded by troops from the UAE, one of the key members of the Arab coalition.
