The attack came hours after the Red Cross said a gunman killed two of its Yemeni employees in the war-torn country's rebel-held north in a 'deliberate' attack.
The Islamic State group said a man identified as Qusai al-Sanaani blew himself inside the mosque in the northern Jarraf district after sunset prayers.

In a statement on Twitter, the radical Sunni Muslim IS added that a bomb-laden vehicle parked nearby exploded as medics arrived on the scene. The attack was to 'avenge Muslims against the Rafidah (Shiites),' said the statement.
