SANAA, Dec 8 (Reuters) – Three Yemeni women and a boy were killed by a landmine which exploded as the boy was playing with it, a security official said on Monday.
The official told Reuters the explosion late on Sunday injured three other women and another boy in a village in Taiz province, 260 km (160 miles) south of the capital Sanaa.
The mine was apparently left over from a conflict between former South and North Yemen before they united in 1990. A brief civil war took place in 1994 after southern leaders made a failed bid to restore their state.
