Airport Attack – level 3

06-01-2021 07:00

An attack at Aden international airport has killed at least 26 people, leaving another 60 injured.

A large explosion rocked the Yemen airport shortly after a plane landed that was carrying members of Yemen´s newly formed government. The war-torn country´s government arrived from neighboring Saudi Arabia, and according to the prime minister, they were all uninjured. A second attack targeted the city´s Mashiq Palace, where cabinet members had been taken following the initial incident. No person or group has taken responsibility for the attacks so far.

Yemen has been devastated by a conflict that escalated in 2015, and it triggered the world´s worst humanitarian disaster. Reportedly, more than 110,000 people died in the conflict and millions are facing famine.

Difficult words: war-torn (a place that is devastated by war), initial (happening at the beginning), famine (a severe shortage of food).
