The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for three suicide bombings Friday that targeted Yemeni checkpoints in Aden and what it said was an attack on a nearby base of the pro-government Arab coalition.
The IS-affiliated Amaq news agency said in an online report that "IS fighters have launched three martyrdom operations and an attack on a base of the coalition in Aden".
It claimed the attacks killed at least 27 people. A security official said earlier that the bombings killed at least 22 people, including 10 civilians.
