SANAA: The death toll in Yemen’s suicide bomb attacks on two mosques in the capital

Sanaa on Friday rose to 126, a medical source told Reuters.

Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot that has seized large areas of Iraq and Syria, has claimed responsibility for the blasts in the mosques, which are used mainly by supporters of the Shi’ite Muslim Houthi group which has seized control of the government.
