Dubai: A bomb attack in a market killed seven Yemeni civilians including a photographer for a UAE television channel in the government-controlled town of Mokha, medics and military sources said Tuesday.
At least 20 people were wounded in the overnight blast in the Red Sea town, where pro-government forces backed by a military coalition battling the Houthi rebels are based.
The improvised explosive device was planted on a motorcycle parked in the middle of the market, an official in the pro-government forces told AFP.
Seven people were killed, the official and a hospital source said.
A photographer for Abu Dhabi TV, Ziad Al Sharabi, was among the dead, the official Saba news agency quoted Information Minister Moammer Al Eryani as saying.
A correspondent for the same network, Faisal Al Zabhani, was among the wounded, he said.
