SANAA, Yemen: Five engineers affiliated with the Houthi militia were killed while trying to assemble a ballistic missile that exploded in an ammunition depot in Sanaa, a security official said.

The blast, which took place in a residential neighborhood and lasted for about two hours, injured several civilians living nearby and damaged some homes, according to local media reports.

The official attributed the sound of the blast that echoed across the capital on Saturday morning to the explosion in the Houthi-owned depot near Sanaa International Airport, reported Al-Masdar Online.
