    Yemen: Arab coalition soldiers die in Aden attack

    Oct.6, Aden: At least 15 soldiers from the Arab coalition and its allies in Yemen have been killed in attacks in Aden, local media reported.

    According to the official WAM news agency of the United Arab Emirates, explosions hit a hotel housing Yemeni officials and a Gulf military base in Aden.

    A government spokesman and residents said that it was the biggest attack on the government since it retook the city from its Houthi foes in July.
    Official news agency said of the dead, four were Emiratis and one was Saudi.

    All government ministers and the prime minister were safe and unhurt, Yemeni officials said, adding that the Cabinet will imminently hold an emergency meeting on the attack.

    Members of the Gulf coalition have been providing security at the luxury al-Qasr hotel, and the Yemeni government officials' presence there makes it a highly symbolic target for the rebels.
