Car bomb explodes at temple in Yemen

A car bomb exploded at the site of an ancient temple in Yemen's northeast province of Mareb on Monday, killing eight people and wounding at least seven, police said.

 



Police in Mareb said six of the people killed were tourists, believed to be mostly from Spain. The other two were Yemenis, they said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

 



Authorities in the province said the blast was caused by a car bomb, and witnesses reported seeing a car enter a gate at the site of temple, which was built about 3,000 years ago at the time of the ancient Queen of Sheba before exploding.
