Sanaa, Yemen (CNN)ISIS militants claimed responsibility for a suicide car bombing that killed at least 11 people Thursday outside the palace where Yemeni President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi resides in Yemen's southern port city of Aden.

This was just one of the latest violent incidents in a Middle Eastern country that has become a proxy battleground for Saudi Arabia and Iran, as well as a target for Islamist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
Two schoolchildren and a number of security troops were among the dead, and at least six other people were injured, three senior Aden security officials said.
