Sanaa: A car bomb detonated near a hospital in the Yemeni capital Sana on Tuesday, killing and wounding people, according to the state news agency which is controlled by the country`s dominant Houthi group.

"A security source in the capital told the state news agency Saba that a car bomb exploded this evening, leading to the martyrdom and injury of numerous citizens," the agency said.
