About 10 people descend the stairs from the plane that landed safely at the airport.

Prime Minister Main Abdulmalik and other ministers of the newly formed Yemeni government.

Supporters cheer and greet.

The scene, which used to be a festive atmosphere, with local broadcasts being broadcast live, quickly becomes a mess with a powerful explosion.

AFP news agency reported that 26 people have been killed and 50 have been injured so far in an explosion at Yemen’s Aden airport on the 30th local time.

There were no casualties among government officials.

After the first explosion, when people flock towards the injured, the second explosion occurred, causing more damage.

Reuters reported that three mortars had fallen into the airport.

MSF says it is preparing to treat many injured people, and an International Red Cross official says one of its employees has been killed and two have been missing.

Foreign media reported that there was an explosion sound even near the presidential palace where ministers moved after the airport explosion.

The Yemeni government accused it of being a Huti rebel, backed by Iran.

In Yemen, after the civil war began in earnest in 2015, the Arab allied forces led by Saudi Arabia supported the Yemeni government, leading to a conflict between rebel Huti and the government forces.
