Twenty killed in air strike in southwest Yemen


In Yemen, 20 people were killed in an air strike by a Saudi-led military coalition. According to a media, the attack hit a car transporting 20 passengers south of Taiz province yesterday. Six bodies had been identified but the rest were charred beyond recognition.

A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition said it would investigate the report. Meanwhile, medical sources said, Houthi fighters killed two people, including a woman, and wounded four others in an attack north of Taiz yesterday.

The coalition intervened in Yemen’s civil war in 2015 against the Iran-aligned Houthis who ousted the internationally recognised government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. The Houthis now control the capital Sanaa. The Yemen war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced more than 2 million and driven the country to the verge of famine, according to the United Nations.
