Police cadets among 10 dead in suicide bombing
A suicide bomber has blown himself up outside a police academy in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, killing at least 10 people and wounding 15 – many of them young police cadets – in an attack investigators said bore the hallmarks of al-Qaeda.
Policeman Fadel Ali said the cadets were leaving the college when the bomber attacked. “We ran to the place and found dozens of cadets covered in blood. Blood was everywhere. The scene was horrific.”
Another witness said he saw a man in his 20s enter the crowd as cadets gathered in front of the academy. “A loud explosion shook the area and I saw cadets lying on the ground with blood everywhere.”
A similar suicide attack in the capital in May killed more than 90 people during a rehearsal for a military parade. That attack was claimed by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. – (Reuters)
