Sanaa, Yemen (CNN) -- A deadly blast rocked a bus carrying Yemeni soldiers in the capital of Sanaa on Sunday.
There were conflicting reports on the number of people killed.
Interior ministry officials initially said that 10 people had died and 14 more injured. But the defense ministry later said only one person had died and 24 others wounded.
Explosives had been planted in the rear of the bus, which was carrying air force personnel to their headquarters, the interior ministry officials said.
