March 2 1998

Just before the evening prayers at around 8 pm on Saturday, February 28, the sound of an almighty explosion reverberated around the Mansoora residential quarter in Aden.
One man died and three were seriously injured when a what is thought to be a time bomb went off in an old cemetery near Al-Rahman mosque.
Sheikh Moqbil Al-Wadi’i, representing a puritanical religious sect associated with the northern tribes of Sanaa, Saada, and Hajja, was delivering a sermon at Al-Rahman mosque when the bomb exploded.
Intensive investigations are underway to find the exact cause of the blast and apprehend the its perpetrators.
