The Islamic State jihadist group claimed responsibility for a mosque bombing targeting Shias in Yemen's capital on Thursday that killed at least 25 people.

In an online statement, IS said a suicide bomber had struck "Houthi infidels", in a reference to the Shia rebels who have been in control of the capital for the past year.
