Twenty five people were killed in a suicide bombing at a mosque during Eid al-Adha prayers, security officials in Yemen’s capital Sanaa said.
The officials said dozens were wounded in the blast today.
They said the suicide bomber placed an explosive device in his shoe, causing an initial explosion.
As worshippers rushed to the door, he detonated himself in the middle of the crowd.
Eid al-Adha is a major Muslim holiday also known as the feast of sacrifice.
