Dozens Killed in Two Mosque Attacks in Yemen

Suicide bombers attacked two mosques in the centre of Yemen's capital city Sanaa, killing several people. According to the BBC, at least 24 are dead, and the final count is thought to be higher. The blast comes a day after intense gun battles in the southern city of Aden, between rival troops loyal to Yemen's former and current president, which left 13 dead. The Houthis, who are allies to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, have controlled the capital last year since September. Earlier this year they put Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, the western-backed president, under house arrest.
