Islamic State Bombs Kill 31 at Shia Sites in Yemen

One of the car bombs targeted the house of Houthi leader Taha al-Mutawakel and the adjacent Al-Hashush mosque, which was targeted in the March bombings claimed by Isil. Bombs also went off at two other mosques – Al-Kibssi and Al-Tayssir in the Al-Ziraa district. All the attacks were timed to coincide with Muslim sunset prayers. The Isil statement claimed that the attack on Al-Kibssi was a car bomb.
