INTERPOL condemns terror attack against police academy in Yemen
LYON, France - INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble has condemned in the strongest terms Wednesday’s suspected suicide bomb attack against the police academy in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, in which authorities said at least six people were killed and dozens more left wounded.
Police authorities were quoted as saying that the suicide attack took place as the police cadets were leaving the academy after their classes had finished.
With many of the victims and wounded described as teenage cadets, Secretary General Noble described the blast as 'senseless and cowardly'.
"On behalf of the international law enforcement community, INTERPOL condemns this cruel and murderous bombing in the strongest terms and extends its condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims," said Secretary General Noble.
The attack in Sanaa comes weeks after another blast which killed 91 people was claimed by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
