DUBAI (Reuters) - Twenty two people were killed in an attack on a mosque during Friday prayers inside a military base in Yemen’s Marib province, local officials said.
Two missiles were fired at the mosque located inside the military camp of Kofal in the west of Marib after a rocket was fired, the officials said.
Most of Marib is under the control of forces loyal to President Abd Rabbu Mansour al-Hadi. Iran-allied Houthis are battling his internationally recognized government.
