Shortly after, a bomb-laden vehicle exploded when members of the public were helping victims, Xinhua news agency reported.

Witnesses near the scene said that about 20 minutes after the first suicide bombing inside the mosque the second explosion was followed by a car bomb killing and injuring dozens paramedics.

The Houthi-controlled Saba news agency reported that the second explosion took place when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-packed truck into the main gate of the targeted mosque where scores of people gathered to rescue injured people.
