Senior Yemeni military leader killed in car bombing in Aden

A car bombing killed a senior Yemeni military leader and three of his entourage in the southern port city of Aden on Wednesday, three security sources said.

The defence ministry confirmed that Brigadier General Thabet Gawas was killed in a “cowardly attack carried out by several terrorist elements” but provided no further details.

Gawas was returning from a personal visit when his car was hit by the blast in a suburb of the city, the security sources said. Aden’s AIC Television showed footage of a car in flames.
