Two people at least were killed and 10 other injured when a car bomb exploded in a convoy of tribesmen loyal to Al Houthi Shiite rebels on Friday in Sa’ada north of Yemen, said sources in the convoy.
The attack is the second of its kind (car bomb) against tribesmen loyal to Al Houthi in less than week.
The suicide bomber was killed and his car and two others of the targeted convoy were destroyed in the terrorist attack.
About 40 cars with tribesmen on board from Mareb province under the leadership of sheikh Mubarak Al Mashan, were in their way to participate in a funeral of the spiritual leader of Al Houthi rebels, 86- year old Badar Al Deen Al Houthi who died earlier this week.
Mubarak Al Mashan, a tribal leader from Jihm tribe of Mareb, escaped the attack because he was not in his car which was destroyed by the car bomb, other sources said.
The attack took place in Al Saifi area , between Al Taleh and Dhahyan in Sa’ada province.
Two days earlier, a car bomb targeted a convoy of tribesmen from Al Jawf province in their way to celebrate the Shiite day Al Ghadeer killing about 20 of them.
