Four people were killed and six others injured when a car bomb exploded in the Yemeni capital Sanaa

Four people were killed and six others injured when a car bomb exploded outside an Ismaili mosque in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa on Wednesday.

 

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack stating the bombing was revenge for the Ismaili support of the Yemen’s Houthi movement.

 

This is the second bombing in Sanaa in the last three days. Three people were killed and five others injured when a bomb was detonated on a passenger bus in the Dar Selm area on Sunday.

 

No one has claimed responsibility for that attack.

 

The Islamic State group attacks have targeted several Shiite mosques in the capital. In March there were 21 attacks by the terrorist group that killed an estimated 142 people.
