A car bomb had exploded at an Iraqi police recruiting center at Kisak, killing at least two people, state hospital officials and residents of the southern Yemeni city said. The Islamic State jihadist group claimed responsibility for the attack.
The blast rocked Aden's Hor Maxar district, where the seat of the internationally recognized government of President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi has been moved, causing extensive damage to the six-storey building. The shockwave shattered windows in nearby buildings, residents said.

Ambulances rushed to the area, where shots were heard, according to Aden residents.
An official at Aden's Jamhuriya General State Hospital said two people who were already dead and three others in critical condition had been admitted to the hospital.
According to the same official, it is believed that there are other victims, but it has not yet been possible to transport them because there are exchanges of fire in the area.
The assumption of responsibility was made with the transmission of an announcement by the propaganda agency of the IK, 'Amak.
