ADEN, Yemen, At least two people were killed on Monday, when a civilian vehicle was hit by a landmine explosion, in Yemen's southwestern province of Taiz, a security official said.
The security source said, the explosion occurred when a running civilian vehicle touched off a landmine, along a sub-road in Madabi-Hamir area, to the northwestern part of Taiz province.
He said, the landmine explosion destroyed the vehicle, leaving two people killed and wounding other civilians at the scene.
The Saudi-backed Yemeni government, repeatedly accuses the Houthi group of planting different types of landmines indiscriminately, in residential areas, causing civilian casualties.
Previous reports of humanitarian organisations suggested that Yemen has become one of the largest landmine battlefields in the world, since World War II.
The conflict between the Houthis and the Saudi-backed Yemeni government has recently entered its fifth year, aggravating the suffering of Yemenis and deepening the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
