Sanaa:  A Yemeni fighter jet crashed in the centre of the capital Sanaa on Tuesday, killing at least six people, medical sources said. The ministry said in a text message that the warplane had been on a training flight when it came down in a western residential district.

Pictures of the crash on social media sites showed one body near burning wreckage of the aircraft.

Several cars were on fire and debris littered the street. A security official said without elaborating that the pilot had ejected from the plane. A military official said the aircraft was a Russian SU-22.
