At least 96 Yemeni people, including soldiers, have been killed in a bomb attack carried out in the capital, Sana’a.
The Monday bombing was conducted at the Sabeen Square of the capital as a battalion of Yemeni soldiers was rehearsing for an army parade to mark the 22nd anniversary of the unification of north and south Yemen, the official added.
The attack in Sana’a was carried out two days after Yemeni military officials said two people were killed in a US assassination drone attack in the central province of Bayda on May 19.
The Monday bombing was the deadliest in Yemen since new President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi took power in February, Rohama reported.
The new Yemeni president, who is a UK-trained field marshal, was sworn in on February 25 following a single-candidate presidential election, which was supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia.
