A Shiite rebel group spokesman says a suicide car bomber struck Shiite mourners heading to a funeral in northern Yemen, killing at least two people.

Sanaa: A Shiite rebel group spokesman says a suicide car bomber struck Shiite mourners heading to a funeral in northern Yemen, killing at least two people.

Mohammed Abdel-Salam says the bomber attacked the convoy
traveling today to Saada province to attend the funeral of
Badr al-Hawthi, the father of the Shiite rebel group`s leader.

He says eight people were also wounded.

It`s the second suicide bombing against Yemeni Shiites
this week. On Wednesday, a suicide car bomb struck a convoy of
Shiites on their way to a religious ceremony, killing 17
people.
Many Shiites in Yemen support the Hawthi rebels, who have
long fought government troops.
Authorities blamed al-Qaida for Wednesday`s attack, the
terror network`s first reported strike against Yemeni Shiites.
