Explosion in Yemen Airport

Explosions have rocked the airport in Yemen's port city of Aden soon after a plane carrying the new government arrived from Saudi Arabia.

At least ten people were killed and dozens more wounded, a security source told Reuters.

PM Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed and cabinet members reportedly escaped unharmed and were taken to a presidential palace.

The information minister said the blasts were the result of a "cowardly terrorist attack" by Houthi rebels.
