Twin suicide bombings kill at least 10 at Houthi-run Yemeni mosque
By Mohammed Ghobari SANAA (Reuters) - Two suicide bombers killed at least ten people at a mosque run by Yemen's Houthi group on Thursday in the capital Sanaa, where Muslim worshippers were celebrating the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday, medics and witnesses said. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack at al-Balili mosque just outside the Old City of Sanaa, but it appeared to resemble previous bombings by Islamic State that have killed hundreds of Zaydis -- a branch of Shi'ite Islam that the militant group considers to be heretical. The Iran-allied Houthis seized Sanaa a year ago and forced President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi into exile in Saudi Arabia.
