SANAA - At least three people were killed on Saturday night in a bomb attack targeting a religious commemoration in the Yemeni capital.
No one claimed responsibility for the attack, but Al Qaeda and its affiliates have targeted the people in the past.
Medics and local officials said 13 other people were also wounded in the attack on a hall where the people were leaving the ceremony in Sanaa.
“Fourteen people were brought to hospital, and three of them have died,” one medic at the Saudi German Hospital said.
A statement issued by the Houthis armed group based in northern Yemen, said the attackers also sprayed the crowd with gunfire and fled.
“We condemn this attack and consider the safety of Yemeni citizens the responsibility of the so-called national unity government,” the statement said.
