142 KILLED IN YEMEN MOSQUES SUCIDE ATTACKS


Suicide bombings claimed by the Islamic State jihadist group killed at least 142 people Friday at mosques in the Yemeni capital, in an attack targeting Shiite worshippers including Huthi militiamen. 
The multiple blasts were among the deadliest attacks yet in Yemen, which is grappling with growing instability and divisions along sectarian lines.
They came a day after clashes between forces loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and those allied with the Huthi Shiite militia in the southern city of Aden, where the leader fled last month.

  • The suicide bombers targeted two mosques attended by Huthis, who have seized the capital Sanaa. 
  • One struck inside Badr mosque in southern Sanaa while another targeted worshipers as they fled outside, witnesses said. 

A third suicide bomber targeted Al-Hashush mosque in northern Sanaa.Nashwan al-Atab, a member of the health ministry's operations committee, told AFP that 142 people were killed and at least 351 were wounded.
The Huthi militia's Al-Massira television said hospitals in the capital had made urgent appeals for blood donations.
The imam of the Badr mosque was among the dead, a medical source said.
