At least 20 people were killed this morning in a suicide attack apparently targeting a Shi’ite Muslim Houthi checkpoint in the centre of the Yemeni capital Sanaa, witnesses said.

One witness counted at least 20 bodies after the bombing in Tahrir Square in central Sanaa, which is under control of Muslim Shi’ite Houthi. Many other people were wounded in the attack, other witnesses said.

A policemen guarding a local bank near the scene said a man apparently wearing a suicide belt approached the Houthi checkpoint. “He then exploded amidst the (Houthi) security and ordinary people near by,” the policemen said.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but the incident appears to mirror previous bombings carried out by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
