Two suicide bombings in Yemen killed 67 people Thursday, with one targeting a rally by Shiite rebels who control Sanaa, leaving body parts strewn across a street and escalating sectarian tensions in a country gripped by turmoil.The suicide bomber in Sanaa detonated his explosives-laden belt as he approached a security checkpoint run by Shiite Houthi rebels outside the anti-government rally, killing 47 people and wounding 75 . The Houthis had called the Sanaa rally to protest President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi's choice for new prime minister, Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak.But despite the suicide bombing and bin Mubarak's declining the premiership, the rally went on later Thursday, with some 4,000 Houthis calling on Hadi to step down and chanting slogans against the United States and Saudi Arabia.
