Extremists blow up 16th-century mosque in Yemen

Sunni Islamist radicals have blown up a mosque housing the shrine of a Sufi scholar in the Yemeni city of Taez. The gunmen were led by a Salafist local chief named Abu al-Abbas. Images of the site before the destruction show a white, single-story structure topped by a large central dome. Yemen’s Commission for Antiquities and Museums has condemned the attack, saying the 16th-century mosque was one of the city’s biggest and most beautiful religious sites.
