A car bomb exploded in Yemen’s capital Sanaa on Saturday near the Qiba al-Mutawakil mosque used by the Houthi militia, witnesses told Reuters, adding they did not know if the blast caused casualties. On Wednesday the Sunni Muslim jihadist group Islamic State claimed responsibility for car bombs which killed or injured at least 50 people near Sanaa mosques and the headquarters of the Houthis, who are mainly drawn from the Shi’ite Zaydi sect.
