Death toll in Aden double car bomb attack reached ten today.

The militants targeted a military base adjoining Aden international airport in southern Yemen, according to a military source who blamed jihadists for the same.

The attackers detonated a car bomb at the entrance to the base, allowing a second vehicle to drive inside where it exploded, the source told AFP, with at least six dead among the military in an updated toll.

“The attackers were jihadists,” the source said.

Clashes then broke out between troops and attackers in the base, which was sealed off by government forces sent as reinforcements, witnesses said.

The attack came as Muslims celebrated the feast of Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.
