At least 49 people were killed Thursday in two separate attacks on police by Yemen rebels and a jihadist suicide bomber in the second city of Aden, a health ministry official said.

"Fourty-nine people were killed and 48 were wounded," Mohammed Rabid told reporters in Aden, the inernationally-recognised government's de facto capital.

He did not specify how many of those killed and wounded were civilians. The death toll has increased from 27.
