The car bombing reportedly targeted the motorcade of Aden’s Governor Ahmed Lamlas and other high-ranking Yemeni officials, who survived the attack.

Governor Ahmed Lamlas and agriculture minister Salem al-Suqatri, both members of a southern separatist group, survived a “terrorist assassination attempt”

“A booby-trapped vehicle exploded in Aden’s district of Tawahi, targeting a traveling convoy carrying a number of government officials,” the local security source said on condition of anonymity.

Killed in the attack were the governor’s press secretary and his photographer, the head of his security detail and a fourth companion as well as a civilian bystander.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. STC spokesman Ali Al-Kathiri in a statement blamed Islamist militant groups.
