A bomb blast has ripped through a Yemeni Army complex in the Southern port city of Aden. Medecins Sans Frontiers is estimating up to 50 dead in the attack, that has been subsequently claimed by ISIS.

The bomber is said to have driven into the complex behind a food truck delivering breakfast to new Army recruits at the complex and detonated a car laden with explosives.

As Houthi Rebels and the Saudi backed Yemeni Army step up their campaigns the country is becoming increasingly unstable and prone to international terrorist organisations.
