At least 50 people were killed in two suicide bombings in Yemen, one in the capital, Sanaa, the other in the country's south.

The Associated Press reported security and hospital officials as saying 30 people died when a suicide bomber set off his explosives in central Sanaa on Thursday morning, targeting a gathering of supporters of the rebel Shiite Houthi movement that recently overran the city.

The second bombing took place at the outskirts of the southern city of Mukalla, where a suicide car bomber rammed his car against a security outpost, killing at least 20 soldiers.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for either attack, which bore the hallmarks of al-Qaida. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
