ISIS claims blasts at Yemen checkpoints; at least 20 dead

ADEN - Three suicide bombs hit checkpoints in the southern Yemeni city of Aden on Friday, killing at least 20 people, residents and eye witnesses said, and Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for the attacks.
In one of the blasts, a vehicle exploded as it arrived at a military checkpoint in the Buraiqa area in northwestern Aden, killing soldiers and civilians, eyewitnesses and security sources said.
The other two bombings hit checkpoints on the road to a base used by the Saudi-led military coalition that is fighting in Yemen.
