ADEN, Two children were killed and three others injured, in a roadside bomb blast in Yemen's southern province of Lahj, on Monday, a security official said.
He said that all the victims were members of one family and accidentally walked through a roadside bomb placed near their house.
Terrorist elements were apparently planning to target a security commander living in the same neighborhood, he added.
Witnesses said the roadside bomb caused a huge explosion in the centre of Lahj province.
Landmines and explosive devices have been claiming civilian lives in Yemen, especially in the southern areas liberated from the Iranian-backed Houthis.
