The incident happened at an army training camp in Yemen's port city of Aden

Sanaa: At least 65 recruits were killed and over 50 others injured on Monday in a suicide attack at an army training camp in Yemen's port city of Aden, security officials said.
An official at Aden's Police Command told Xinhua news agency that dozens of injured army recruits were in critical condition.
A suicide bomber slammed his explosives-laden car into a gathering of army recruits near a school in Aden's Mansourah neighbourhood, the official said.
The targeted army recruits were joining a pro-government force to be deployed at the Saudi border, according to the official.
On Sunday, high-ranking pro-government officials said they were planning to recruit and train over 5,000 young fighters from the government-controlled southern provinces in order to join the Saudi Border Guard Forces in the fight against Houthi rebels.
