The assault killed 60 people and wounded 29 others, medical sources from the three hospitals where the victims were taken told AFP.

Security officials had provided an earlier toll of 11 dead.

The port city, the temporary base of Yemen's Saudi -backed exiled government, has seen a wave of bombings and shootings targeting officials and security forces.

Attacks in Aden are often claimed by Takfiri from either Al-Qaeda or the ISIL group, which have both taken advantage of the chaos in Yemen to make gains in southern and southeastern regions.

But no group claimed immediate responsibility for Monday's attack.
