Twenty people were killed on Wednesday at a mosque in Yemen’s rebel held capital, Sanaa. A suicide bomber and a car bomb detonated their explosives one inside of the mosque and the other at the entrance.
Emergency medical workers said the death toll is likely to rise.
Witnesses reported that the car bomb was detonated as many of the injured were being rushed out of the mosque.
The mosque is reportedly attended by both Sunni and Shiite Muslims.
In a message on social media, Yemen’s Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the bombing, identifying the suicide attacker as Quay al-Sanaan.
