Two improvised explosive devices exploded in south-east Abyan, injuring a local official


A local official in al-Mahfad district was injured Sunday morning in two improvised explosive devices planted along a main road in the al-Mahfad district, southeast of Abyan.

A local source told "Al-Masdar online" that a member of the local council in Al-Mahfad Nasser Ahmed Ba Marhool was lightly injured in the hand after two explosive devices exploded when his car passed.

The two canisters are believed to have been planted to target security forces that were supposed to pass through the same route, by elements believed to belong to al-Qaeda, which recently began to be active in the al-Mahfad district.
