45 people killed in suicide bomb attacks

Two suicide bombers targeted young men seeking to join the army in Yemen Monday morning. 20 people died in the first attack in the city of Aden. Those victims were all men standing in line at a recruitment center. 25 people died in a second bombing when the attacker focused on a group of recruits waiting outside the home of an army commander.

Yemen’s conflict pits the internationally recognized government against Shiite rebels who control the capital, Sanaa, and are allied with a former president. The country also contains active AL-Qaida and Islamic State group affiliates.
