A large explosion and gunshots have been heard at the Aden International Airport moments after a plane carrying members of the Yemeni government arrived from Saudi Arabia, media reported on Wednesday.

According to sources, Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed and members of his cabinet have been safely transferred to the presidential palace in the capital.

The event comes shortly after Saudi Arabia accused Yemeni Houthi of mining one of its commercial cargo ships in the Red Sea.
