A suicide attack on Wednesday rocked a local market in Yemen's mainly-Shiite city of Saada killing two civilians, a Zaidi Ansarullah rebel told AFP.
The attacker detonated a bomb-laden motorbike in the middle of the market, said the rebel, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The blast left another 11 people critically wounded, he added.
The rebels, who belong to the Zaidi sect of Shiite Islam, have controlled the northern part of Yemen since a 2004 uprising they launched against the central government in Sanaa, complaining of marginalisation.
