SANA’A: Two bombs exploded one after the other on a busy road in the Yemeni capital yesterday, wounding 20 people, the interior ministry said.
The twin blasts were on Al Rabat Street where the explosive devices had been hidden among piles of garbage.
No casualties were reported in the first explosion, a ministry spokesman said.
But as pedestrians gathered in the area a second device exploded, wounding 20 people, the official said.
Another official said earlier that 12 people were wounded in the blast.
Cars were damaged in the blast that also shattered windows, he said. Security forces then cordoned off and searched the area.
The bombings are the latest in a series of attacks that usually target military personnel, not civilians.
