Suicide Blasts Kill Dozens During Friday Prayers

Triple suicide bombers hit a pair of mosques crowded with worshipers in the Yemeni capital on Friday, killing 46 and injuring 100 others. A report on the rebel-owned Al-Masirah TV channel said the bombers attacked the Badr and al-Hashoosh mosques during midday prayers, traditionally the most crowded time of the week. It added that hospitals were urging citizens to donate blood. "The heads, legs and arms of the dead people were scattered on the floor of the mosque," Mohammed al-Ansi told The Associated Press, adding, "blood is running like a river."
