Aden Governor Survives Bomb Attack

Aden Governor Survives Bomb Attack

The governor of the southern Yemeni city of Aden survived a car bomb attack targeting his convoy on Friday, security officials and eyewitnesses said.
A parked car detonated as Aidaroos al-Zubaidi and vehicles carrying his bodyguards and retinue drove in the Inma area, Reuters reported.
One soldier was injured, medics said. There was no immediate claim of the attack.
Zubaidi was appointed governor of Aden after his predecessor was killed in a car bombing on Dec. 6 claimed by the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group, the latest attack by the new Yemen branch of the militant group against government targets. Assassins have tried several times before to kill him in car bomb blasts.
IS has stepped up operations since the outbreak of civil war in Yemen, emerging as a forceful rival to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the main militant group in the country in recent years.
