Seven civilians were injured in a bomb explosion in Yemen's southern Abyan province where the army drove Al-Qaeda militants out of their strongholds earlier this year, Almasdar Online reported on Saturday.
The bomb was believed to be of the explosive remnants of the war between the army and Al-Qaeda militants in Al-Mahfad district, the website quoted local sources as saying.
"The seven, one of whom was seriously injured, planned to sell the bomb to a scrap store but it exploded before they could do," the sources said.
Scores of civilians and soldiers have been killed since the authorities started returning the refugees who fled the war to their areas in Abyan province. The deaths occurred due to the explosions of war remnants.
Separately, eight members of a household died on Friday after their home collapsed on them due to a landslide that was caused by heavy rain in Yemen's southern Taiz province.
Local security sources said the heavy rain lashed Taiz for more than an hour leading to the collapse of a wall adjacent to the old styled house of the family in Al-Mudhafar district.
"The wall collapsed on the house killing the eight members, who were inside, and injuring another," the sources said.
