KABUL: (Middle East Press) At least more than 137 people have been killed after four suicide bombers detonated themselves in two mosques in the Yemeni capital Sanaa during Friday prayers, a medical source reported.
One walked inside the mosque and detonated his explosive device, causing panic and making dozens of worshippers rush toward the outside gates.
A second bomber then attacked at the gate as panicked worshippers tried to flee.
A third bomber targeted al-Hashoosh mosque in northern Sana’a.
One witness at the mosque said the force of the explosion threw him a couple of meters away.
According to the source at least 345 people were wounded following the deadly blasts.
Both mosques are known to be used mainly by supporters of the Shi’ite Muslim Houthi group which has seized control of the government.
No group or individual has so far claimed responsibility behind the fatal attacks.
