A bomb blast ripped through a mosque in Yemen on Thursday as Muslims gathered for prayers on the occasion of Eid al Adha. 

The blast was reported at the Blili mosque near a police academy in the capital city of Sanaa, according to AFP.

Two suicide bombers are believed to have blown themselves up. The blast occurred in a region controlled by Shia Houthi rebels. 

According to the Yemen Post, at least 29 people have been killed, while scores of other worshippers have been injured. 

Health officials have confirmed at least 15 deaths, AFP reported.  

The Associated Press cited officials saying that at least 25 people were killed in the double suicide bombing. 

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

Isis had claimed responsibility for several mosque bombings in Shia regions in Yemen in recent months. 

The Sunni Islamist militants regard Shia Muslims as heretics.
