The Yemeni government accused the Houthis and Iran of being behind the attack on Aden airport on Wednesday, which killed 22 people.

Prime Minister Abd al-Malik Saeed said Iranian experts had fired guided missiles, without providing evidence. The Houthis deny responsibility for the bombing.

“The attack may amount to a war crime,” Martin Griffiths, the UN special envoy for Yemen, said in a phone call with Yemeni Foreign Minister Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak.

The missiles exploded at the airport minutes after the plane carrying Yemeni government members landed. None of the ministers was hurt, but journalists and guests waiting for them were among the victims.
