Taiz Governor Survives Roadside Bomb 💣 in Yemen's Aden

An attack in Yemen's southern city of Aden has apparently targeted the convoy of a Saudi-backed Yemeni official.

Witnesses told the Reuters news agency a roadside bomb hit the convoy of the governor of Taiz province on Tuesday.

Amin Ahmed Mahmoud, who is a member of the internationally recognised government in exile of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, survived the blast.

"The governor was not injured, but some of the escorts were injured and taken to hospital," an official at the governor's office told Reuters.

With logistical support from the United States, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have been waging a war in Yemen since March 2015.

Coalition forces quickly retook the southern city of Aden and smaller coastal towns, but since then neither side has made much progress in the war.

The war effort is ostensibly an attempt to reinstate the internationally recognised government of President Hadi.
