A Yemeni government spokesman said a blast hit pipelines connecting oil storage tanks with the refinery in the city of Aden on Friday, causing a huge fire.This is the first time pipelines have come under attack since July, when southern fighters backed by a Saudi-led coalition secured Aden and repelled Shiite rebels and forces loyal to an ousted president.Since then, the city has witnessed a series of militant attacks, most of which were claimed by the local Islamic State affiliate.In Mukalla, security officials said al-Qaida members flogged three young men in an open square in front of hundreds of people on Friday.
