The attack took place at the Ras Abbas military camp located in Aden's western Buraiqa district, the first military source said.

No group has yet claimed the attack, which comes just a day after Aden's governor and its police chief escaped unharmed from a gun attack on their convoy by al-Qaeda.

Three of the attackers were killed and four guards protecting the convoy were wounded in a gunfight, according to the governor's aide.

Aden has seen a growing jihadist presence, with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, long active in Yemen, and the Islamic State group apparently vying for influence.
