ISIL suicide attack kills at least 30 in Yemen


At least 30 people have been killed in a suicide bombing at a police compound in Yemen.

The ISIL militant group have claimed responsibility for the attack which also wounded 60 others, among them the Hadramout chief of police.

The bomber reportedly detonated their device as recruits lined up at a police headquarters in the coastal city of Mukalla.

It is the second deadly blast in four days to hit the city, which acted as a hub for al Qaeda before they were pushed out by government forces backed by the Saudi-led coalition.

The growing threat posed by Islamist militant groups has led Yemen’s warring factions to enter into peace talks underway in Kuwait.

Concern is growing among international organisations about the humanitarian crisis in the country.
