At least four Yemeni policemen have been killed and five others injured as they thwarted a car bomb attack on the airport in the southern port city of Aden.

The incident took place on Sunday when the officers opened fire at a car that was traveling at high speed towards the airport. The vehicle exploded before reaching the facility near a checkpoint.

No individual or group has claimed responsibility for the planned attack.

In a similar incident, an explosive-laden vehicle went off in the al-Arish coastal district of Aden Province.

Meanwhile, Lebanon’s al-Ahed news website reported an escalation in clashes between Saudi-backed loyalists to Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, Yemen’s former president, and the Yemeni army forces and Houthi Ansarullah fighters in a district in Bayda Province.
