MORE than 40 people have been killed and dozens wounded in a missile attack and co-ordinated suicide bombings in Yemen.

A health official said the missile struck a military parade under way in Aden, the temporary seat of the UN-recognised government.

The website of the country’s Houthi rebels quoted spokesman Brigadier General Yehia Sarea as saying the rebels fired a ballistic missile at forces loyal to the United Arab Emirates, a member of the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iran-backed Houthis since 2015.

The official did not give a breakdown for the casualties at the parade but said several commanders were among the casualties.

Abdel Dayem Ahmed, a senior police official, said 11 were killed earlier in the day when an explosives-laden car, a bus and three motorcycles targeted a police station during a morning line-up.

THE heat wave that smashed high temperature records in five European countries a week ago is now over Greenland, accelerating the melting of the island’s ice sheet and causing massive ice loss in the Arctic.

Greenland, the world’s largest island, is a semi-autonomous Danish territory between the Atlantic and Arctic oceans that has 82% of its surface covered in ice.

The area of the ice sheet that is melting has been growing daily, and hit a record 56.5% for this year on Wednesday. The ice melt area was expected to expand and peak yesterday before cooler temperatures slow the pace.

THE one-year-old daughter of the man who died of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s major city of Goma this week has the disease, the health ministry said yesterday.

This is the first transmission of Ebola inside Goma, a city of more than two million people on the Rwandan border, a scenario that health experts have long feared.

The painstaking work of finding, tracking and vaccinating people who had contact with the man, and the contacts of those contacts, has begun.

The man died on Wednesday after spending several days at home with his large family while showing symptoms.
