Yemen capital Sanaa hit by car bomb attack

The AP news agency quoted officials close to the Houthi rebels, who said the blast targeted the homes of several Houthi leaders.

But Reuters quoted a medical official who said the blast “injured 28 people including 12 women in a building where victims of a previous attack were being mourned”.

The Islamic State (IS) militant group has reportedly posted a statement online saying its affiliate group based in Sanaa was behind the attack. IS has carried out a number of attacks in the capital in recent weeks.

  • I’m dreaming of a bloody Ramadan. Just like the ones we always have.
