Triple Suicide Bombing Kills over 100 in Yemen

While Islamist terrorists seem to target Christians and Jews, an attack today shows that their evil acts do not discriminate. The Times of Israel reports that three suicide bombers have killed over 100 today in attacks on mosques in Yemen’s capital:

Triple suicide bombers hit a pair of mosques crowded with worshippers in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, on Friday, killing 77 and injuring 121 others, according to medical officials. The attackers targeted mosques controlled by Shiite rebels.

A Shiite rebel-owned TV channel put the toll at 137 dead and 345 wounded.

A report on the rebel-owned Al-Masirah TV channel said the bombers attacked the Badr and al-Hashoosh mosques during midday prayers on Friday, traditionally the most crowded time of the week. It added that hospitals were urging citizens to donate blood.

Witnesses said that at least two suicide bombers attacked inside the Badr mosque. One walked inside the mosque and detonated his device, causing panic as dozens of worshippers rushed toward the outside gates. A second suicide bomber then attacked amid the panicked crowds trying to escape.
