The blasts happened early Tuesday in the old quarter of Sanaa, an area occupied by many members of the Shiite Muslim Houthi group.

One of the explosions went off as a Houthi militiaman tried to disarm it.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.

The Houthis have clashed with fighters from al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula and other allied Sunni tribesman since overrunning Sanaa in September.
