At least six people have been killed and around 35 wounded in a blast at a mosque in Yemen's northern city of Saada, the provincial governor said on Friday.

"We estimate so far six dead and around 35 wounded," Motahhar Rashad told Al Jazeera television.

"It is a large mosque," he added.

Medical sources told Reuters around 100 people had been taken to two hospitals in Saada with various injuries.
