Bombs kill dozens in south Yemen city

Triple bomb attacks claimed by the Islamic State (IS) group have killed at least 35 people and injured 24 in Yemen's south-eastern city of Mukalla.

 

The militants struck at sunset as soldiers were preparing to break their day-long fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, BBC reports.

 

The attacks involved a suicide bomber, a car bomb and an improvised explosive device, Reuters news agency reports.

 

An offshoot of al-Qaeda controlled the port city until recently.

 

It was recaptured in April by Yemeni government and Saudi-led coalition forces.
