Car Bomb in Yemeni Capital Hits Mourners

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a car bomb that exploded in the Yemeni capital Sanaa overnight. Medics said the bomb wounded at least 28 people gathered to mourn another attack earlier this month. In a new sign that three months of war in Yemen was escalating, the country's military spokesman said its forces had launched a Scud missile at a Saudi military base on Tuesday. A sectarian-tinged conflict has raged throughout Yemen's south and center, pitting the Shi'ite Muslim Houthis against mostly Sunni local militiamen who support the Arab intervention.
