Aden governor survives car bomb attack

The governor of the southern Yemeni city of Aden survived a car bomb attack targeting his convoy on Friday, security officials and eyewitnesses said.

A parked car detonated as Aidaroos Al Zubaidi and vehicles carrying his bodyguards and retinue drove in the Inma area.

One soldier was injured, medics said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Zubaidi was appointed governor of Aden after his predecessor was killed in a car bombing on December 6.
