There has been another car bomb attack in Sanaa.

Shots rang out as survivors raced to the scene near a mosque in the centre of the Yemeni capital. At least two people have been killed and six injured.

The group calling itself Islamic State has reportedly said it planted the bomb.

The Houthi militia, whose fighters frequent the mosque, were the target, according to claims posted on Twitter. Peace talks between the fighting factions ended on Friday in Geneva with no ceasefire deal being signed.

And, while politicians talk, the people suffer.

The United Nationsestimates more than 2,600 have been killed in the fighting in Yemen so far and around 20 million need help.
