SANAA: A suicide bombing outside a mosque in Yemen’s insurgent-held capital killed seven people on Wednesday.There was no immediate claim of this bombing.

A man wearing an explosives belt blew himself up yesterday evening among a group of Huthi rebels guarding Al-Nour mosque, where both Sunnis and Shias pray in the northwest of the capital, witnesses said.The attack left “seven citizens dead and wounded three others,” the rebel-controlled sabanews.net website reported.

IS claimed responsibility for a similar bombing in Sanaa on September 24 that killed 25 people.The Iran-backed Huthi rebels have held the capital for more than a year, after sweeping south from their northern highlands.
