At least 45 people killed in two suicide bombings in Yemen

At least 45 people have been killed in two suicide bombings in the city of Aden in Yemen, security officials have told the Associated Press.

The officials said the two bombers targeted young men seeking to join the army. One of the bombers was in a car and targeted an army recruitment centre, killing at least 20.

A second bomber on foot detonated his explosive vest among a group of recruits waiting outside the home of an army commander, killing at least 25.

Aden is serving as the temporary capital of Yemen's Saudi-backed administration while it seeks to seize back the capital Sanaa from the armed Houthi group.
