Suicide bombers kill 120 people in two Yemeni Houthi mosques

Suicide bombers on Friday killed 120 people and injured more than 300 others in two mosques in Yemen frequented by pro-Iranian Houthi rebels, two officials with the rebel group said. These rebels recently took control of the capital Sanaa and forced President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi to flee. ISIS claimed credit for the attack in a tweet on an account associated with the terrorist group. If it indeed carried out the operation, it would mark the terrorist group's first major attack in Yemen.
