Despite 6,600 People Dead, 2.5m Displaced IS Strikes Again In Yemen

At least 40 people have been killed in a suicide car bombing at a military facility in the southern Yemen city of Aden, officials say.

A training camp, or compound used by the pro-government Popular Resistance militia, was hit, reports say. So-called Islamic State said it carried out the attack.

It comes amid a fresh push to end Yemen's 17-month-old war between Saudi-backed government and rebels that the UN says has left 6,600 people dead.

Some 2.5 million Yemenis have also been displaced.
