A blast struck a military graduation parade in Yemen's southern town of Al Dhalea, Security Belt forces said on Sunday.

The forces said that at least five people were killed. No claim of responsibility was made.

The Security Belt forces are part of a southern separatist front in southern Yemen that is fighting against the Iran-aligned Al Houthis.

Witnesses told Reuters that the explosion occurred near a guest platform during the parade and that dozens were wounded or killed. They reported seeing bodies at the scene.

Yemen has suffered from almost five years of conflict since the Houthi movement ousted President Abdrabu Mansur Hadi's government in late 2014.

The coup led to military intervention in 2015 by a Saudi-led coalition seeking to restore Mr Hadi's internationally recognised government.

The town of Al Dhalea is controlled by southern separatist forces. It lies on the main road linking the southern port of Aden controlled by Mr Hadi's government and the Houthi-controlled capital, Sanaa, in the north.

A contested front line runs across Al Dhalea province.
