ADEN (Reuters) - An explosion in the Yemeni city of Aden killed and wounded several people on Monday, residents said, as security forces throughout southern Yemen struggle to defeat al Qaeda and Islamic State militants.

The blast occurred in the Khor Maksar district of the port city, which serves as the temporary capital of Yemen's Saudi-backed government while it seeks to seize back the capital Sanaa from the armed Houthi group.
