Two killed in Sa'ada motorcycle explosion.
Sheikh Fares Mana', the governor of Sa'ada, said a motorcycle, packed with explosives, detonated at about 8:30 a.m. in the crowded market.
The Defense Ministry identified the motorcyclist as Ali Salem Al-Gharazi.
The motorcyclist and one other resident were killed. According to the orders of the governor, the injured people were taken to Al-Salam Hospital, in Sa'ada.
Brigadier General Abdulhakeem Al-Maweri, Sa'ada Security Chief, said the person who detonated the bomb has been identified as an employee at a local cafe, located inside the market. Investigations are underway, Al-Maweri said.
Al-Maweri said that the injured are civilians and aren't associated with any particular political party to his knowledge.
Representatives from Houthis, the political and religious movement that operates with near-sovereignty in this northern governorate, did not comment.
Sa'ada witnessed a series of brutal wars between Houthi groups and state forces in the last decade.
