Four car bombs targeted three mosques and the political headquarters of Yemen's dominant Houthi group on Wednesday, killing and wounding dozens of people, a security official said.
The blasts came as Saudi-led forces conducted more air strikes against Houthi military sites across Yemen and as delegates attending peace talks in Switzerland reported no progress on the second day of a U.N.-sponsored push for a Ramadan truce.
"Four car bombs targeted the political bureau of Ansarullah, the Hashush mosque
in the Jiraf district, the Kibsi mosque
in the Zira district and the Qubat al-Khadra mosque
, causing the martyrdom and injury
of dozens," the official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

blew up the home of a senior politician, Abdel-Aziz Jubari
, while he was attending the Geneva
talks as a member of the exiled government's delegation.
's Foreign Minister Reyad Yassin Abdulla
