“The attacker drove his vehicle into a gathering of new recruits at the camp in northern Aden,” Security official said. “The assault killed 60 people and wounded 29 others”, medical sources told AFP.

The death toll has reached to 60, earlier it was 11.

The shooting and bombings was held at the port city, the temporary base of Yemen's Gulf-backed government. The attack targeted officials and security forces.

The speculations were believed that the attack was held by Jihadists in Aden. The reports revealed that they either belong to Al-Qaeda or the Islamic State group.

Over the past two months, hundreds of soldiers were trained by Yemeni authorities in Aden as part of operations to retake neighbouring southern provinces from jihadists.

Prior this month, Yemeni government powers upheld by a Saudi-drove coalition entered Abyan's commonplace capital Zinjibar.

“Troops retook other towns across Abyan but have been met by fierce resistance in key Al-Qaeda stronghold, Al-Mahfid, a town which lies further east”, security sources said.
