Dubai: A horrifying incident in the “Dar Saad” district of Aden, Yemen, left the community in shock after a man detonated a hand grenade, killing both him and his wife on Tuesday evening.
Residents in the vicinity of the Community College and the new district post said the couple, a 29-year-old man and his 30-year-old wife, had been entangled in ongoing disputes for months. The conflicts had escalated to the point where the wife decided to leave their home and take refuge in her family’s residence, refusing to come back.
Neighbours reported that the tension between the couple had intensified over time. The husband, in a bid to confront his wife, chose a public setting near the “Al Kamsari” park for their meeting. As the altercation between them heated up, the man pulled out a grenade, held his wife close, and detonated it, causing their immediate deaths.
Following the explosion, security forces quickly cordoned off the area and shut down the main street. The couple’s remains were transported to Al Jumhuriya Hospital in Aden.
Surveillance footage of the tragic incident, which captured the couple’s heated discussion and subsequent explosion, has been widely circulated on social media platforms.
Another video showcased the aftermath, depicting the couple’s lifeless bodies surrounded by onlookers.
This event comes on the heels of another tragic incident in Aden. Surveillance footage from a local mall captured a woman being fatally stabbed, with one wound inflicted to the eye, by a male mall employee after she declined his marriage proposal.
