Yemen airport blasts kill 13 as new government arrives

Although all government ministers were reported to be unharmed, more than 50 people were wounded in the southern city, with the casuality toll feared likely to rise.

The first day of Ramadan brought hope to Yemen with the start of a two-month truce. But a few days in, warring sides have already traded accusations of ceasefire violations.
