The ambassador, Hossein Niknam, was not at home when the bomb exploded at the residence in Sanaa, Yemeni capital. A security guard and his son were killed. The blast punched a hole into the residence and heavily damaged several nearby buildings.

Sunni militants regard Iran as their enemy in Yemen, having armed and helped the Huthis to take power in Sanaa.
