A suicide bomber killed at least eight people and wounded 17, including a senior commander, when he rammed a car laden with explosives into a government military convoy travelling in eastern Yemen on Wednesday, a security official said.
The official said that six soldiers and two civilians died in the attack near the city of al-Qatan on the convoy of General Abdul-Rahman al-Halili, head of Yemen's First Military Region which is loyal to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
Halili, who was on his way to inspect Yemeni government forces, suffered medium injuries in the attack.
