SANAA, September 24, 2015

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up at a mosque run by Yemen's Houthi group in the capital Sanaa on Thursday, the first day of the Muslim Eid Al-Adha holiday, causing many casualties, witnesses said.
 
The Houthis Ansarullah group's website said at least 10 people were killed in the attack, targeting Al-Balili mosque in Santa's Al-Safya district.
 
The bombing came as Muslims around the world celebrated the Eid Al-Adha -- the feast of sacrifice -- which Muslims mark by prayers in congregation at mosques.
 
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. - Reuters
