IS Claims Deadly Double Bombing In Yemen


At least 20 people are killed as a suicide bomber targets a mosque, before a car bomb detonates as people rush to help.
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a bomb attack that killed at least 20 people at a Yemeni mosque.

A suicide bomber, named by the militants as Quay al-Sanaani, detonated his device inside the mosque in the country's capital, Sanaa.

As casualties pleaded for help, a car bomb exploded outside an entrance to the mosque - injuring more people.

It is the latest attack by the country's Islamic State affiliate. Suicide bombings on 20 March killed 137 people and injured 345.

Yemen has been struggling through civil war since its capital was captured by Shia rebels, known as Houthis, in September.
