Suicide bombers kill twenty nine people at a mosque in Yemen

At least twenty nine people on Thursday attending the Eid al-Adha holiday prayers are dead in Yemen after bombs were detonated inside a crowded mosque in the capital city of Sanaa.

 

Officials said that the death toll is expected to rise from the two explosions that struck the al-Balili mosque because dozens of worshipers suffered severe injuries.

 

Authorities said that one suicide bomber reportedly detonated explosives inside the mosque and as people ran away a second bomber set off explosives at the front door.

 

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
