Yemenis gather around a burnt vehicle at the site where a mine, that Yemeni soldiers were taking away in their vehicle, blew up in a marketplace yesterday in Huta, the capital of the southern province of Lahj, a bastion of Al Qaeda militants. The mine, that the Yemeni soldiers had “dismantled”, exploded when they stopped at the market, killing three soldiers and wounding at least seven civilians.


Three Yemeni soldiers were killed yesterday when a mine they had “dismantled” and taken away in their vehicle blew up as they stopped in a marketplace, a security official said.
Seven other people including three civilians were wounded in the blast in Huta, capital of the southern province of Lahj, a bastion of Al Qaeda militants, according to the official.
The soldiers had “dismantled” the mine planted by suspected jihadists on a road on the edge of Huta and placed it in the back of their vehicle, he said, declining to be named. The device exploded when they stopped 
at a market in the city, he added.
Forces loyal to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi are at war on two fronts, against both militants and Shia Houthi rebels who control swathes of northern and central Yemen.
