Asian Journal - - Asia -

Sanaa: The Is­lamic State (IS) mil­i­tant group said that it car­ried out four car bomb at­tacks against the Shi­ite Houthi group here in Ye­men. The as­sault killed at least 18 peo­ple and wounded dozens. IS said in a state­ment, posted on Twit­ter, that its sol­diers used four car bombs -- one out­side the of­fice of the Houthi po­lit­i­cal bureau, the high­est de­ci­sion-mak­ing body, and the rest near three mosques where Houthi fol­low­ers were pray­ing. Se­cu­rity sources told Xin­hua that 18 Houthi sup­port­ers were killed while they were hold­ing a cer­e­mony, per­tain­ing to the holy month of Ramadan, near the of­fice, and dozens of peo­ple were wounded in the blasts at the mosques.
