Explosion Damages Buildings in Capital

April 17, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

An explosion damaged several buildings in downtown Sana, the Yemeni capital. No injuries were reported in the blast, and a group that says it backs the Al Qaeda terrorism network claimed responsibility.

Witnesses said the blast occurred in front of adjacent building entrances to the General Civil Aviation Authority and a branch office of the Yemeni intelligence service.

The group, which did not identify itself, renewed its threat to carry out bombings if 173 people being held in Yemen were not freed.
