Aden, Yemen: An explosion struck an ambulance carrying a medic team of the southern pro-government Yemeni forces in southern Abyan province, killing five medics on board, a security official told Xinhua.

“A remotely detonated Improvised Explosive Device (IED) struck an ambulance carrying a medical military team of the southern troops while passing through a main road in the Al Mahfid district of Abyan,” the security official said on condition of anonymity, adding the blast also destroyed the ambulance on Saturday.

Homemade bombs were heavily laid by terrorist elements through various roads and areas in an attempt to impede and abort the progress of the pro-government military campaign aimed at tracking down terrorists in Abyan, he noted.

No group has claimed responsibility for bombing the military medical team yet. Yemeni military and government officials often hold the Yemen-based al-Qaida branch responsible for such attacks.
