At least 65 recruits were killed and over 50 others injured on Monday in a suicide attack at an army training camp in Yemen’s port city of Aden.

An official at Aden’s Police Command said that dozens of injured army recruits were in critical condition. A suicide bomber slammed his explosives-laden car into a gathering of army recruits near a school in Aden’s Mansourah neighbourhood, the official said. The targeted army recruits were joining a pro-government force to be deployed at the Saudi border.

On Sunday, high-ranking pro-government officials said they were planning to recruit and train over 5,000 young fighters from the government-controlled southern provinces in order to join the Saudi Border Guard Forces in the fight against Houthi rebels.
