Twin Suicide Bombings Target Yemen Mosque

At least 10 people have been killed, following a twin suicide bombing, targeting a Houthi mosque, in Yemen.

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up at a mosque run by Yemen’s Houthi group in the capital Sana’a on Thursday, the first day of the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday, causing many casualties, witnesses said.

The Houthis Ansarullah group’s website said at least 10 people were killed in the attack, targeting al-Balili mosque in al-Safya district, in Sana’a.

The bombing came as Muslims around the world celebrated the Eid al-Adha – the feast of sacrifice – which Muslims mark by prayers in congregation at mosques.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
