A suicide bombing on Saturday in Yemen, claimed to be carried out by ISIL, has killed at least 48 Yemeni soldiers. Officials say another 29 were wounded in the attack. The bombing occurred in the southern port city of Aden, when a bomber detonated his explosive belt as hundreds of troops were gathering to collect their monthly pay at the Al-Sawlaban military camp.

Local authorities have been pressing on with their campaign against the militant group for several months, as the jihadists are active in both the southern and eastern parts of the country. ISIL and Al-Qaeda militant groups have also carried out a series of attacks in Aden.
