SANAA, Yemen (AP) — A Yemeni official says a suicide bomber blew himself up during a military parade rehearsal in the capital Sanaa, killing scores of people.
The official says the bomber was a soldier who was participating in the parade drill on Monday at a main square near the presidential palace in Sanaa. It was a practice for the celebration of Yemen's National Day on Tuesday.
There was no immediate figure on the number of dead and wounded. Ambulances rushed to the area to ferry the casualties.
