An explosion hit a bus carrying Yemeni soldiers in the capital Sanaa on Tuesday causing several casualties, a police source and witnesses said.

The police source said that out of eight wounded people, three were in critical condition. Yemen has been hit by turmoil ever since mass protests in 2011 ousted long-serving President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The country, which neighbours Saudi Arabia and is home to one of Al-Qaeda’s most active branches, is wrestling with instability, internal conflicts and poor governance.
