Multiple suicide bombings claimed by ISIS killed at least 142 people and wounded around 351 others Friday at Shiite mosques in Yemen's capital in the deadliest violence to hit the fragile war-torn nation in decades.A group claiming to be a Yemeni branch of ISIS said it carried out the bombings and warned of an "upcoming flood" of attacks against the Houthi rebels, who have taken over the capital and much of Yemen. The group issued an official statement denying it carried out Friday's bombings, pointing to earlier instructions from the terror network's leader Ayman al-Zawahri not to strike mosques or markets.The ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, formally accepted their oaths and declared a "province" of ISIS in Yemen in November.In an online statement, a group calling itself the media office of ISIS "Sanaa Province" claimed responsibility for the attack, saying that the four Sanaa suicide bombers blew themselves up among crowds of Houthis.
