Islamic State sympathizers online claim Yemen bomb attacks

Supporters of the Islamic State group have posted an online statement claiming its militants detonated four car bombs targeting two Shiite mosques and two Shiite rebel offices in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa. Security officials had said Wednesday’s bombings were carried out by suicide attackers against offices of the Shiite rebels known as Houthis, who control Sanaa. But the statement online suggests the cars were booby trapped. The Health Ministry said “preliminary” reports indicate the blasts killed four people and wounded 60.
