Two Killed in Car Bomb Explosion Near Home of Iran’s Ambassador in Yemen
ABC News/AP – A car bomb exploded Wednesday near the home of Iran’s ambassador to Yemen, killing two people amid a Shiite power grab in the impoverished Arab country believed to be supported by the Islamic Republic.
Iran’s ambassador to Yemen, Hossein Niknam, was not at home when the bomb exploded at the residence in the capital, Sanaa, killing a security guard and his son, security officials said. The blast heavily damaged several nearby buildings and punched a hole into the residence. An Iranian flag later lay on the debris.
