Multiple suicide attacks in Yemen's Sanaa on Friday killed at least 142 people and left over 350 injured.

The bombings have been claimed by the Islamic State (IS), which, if proven, would be the group's first attacks on Yemeni soil.

MEE's Yousef Mawry was at the scene, interviewing eye-witnesses and capturing upsetting footage of a father finding his deceased son in a hospital.
