Triple suicide bombings killed at least 142 people Friday at Shiite mosques in the Yemeni capital, medics said, while ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks.One suicide bomber struck inside Badr mosque in southern Sanaa while another targeted worshippers as they fled outside, witnesses said.Four people were killed in an ambush on the Lahj-Taiz road but General Abdel Hafedh al-Sakkaf, the special forces chief in Aden, escaped unharmed, said the official from Lahj.He said the attack took place in Al-Athawir as Sakkaf fled Aden in a convoy to Lahj, on its way towards militia-held Sanaa. The attack came as forces loyal to Hadi tightened their control over Aden where the situation was calm early Friday.At least seven special forces fighters and four members of the Popular Committees were killed in clashes in Aden Thursday, security sources said, and 54 were wounded on the two sides.
