Yemeni Family Killed in Saudi-Led Airstrike

Yemeni Family Killed in Saudi-Led Airstrike

Seven members of a family were killed in an overnight strike by Saudi-led warplanes on a border village in northern Yemen, residents said.
Residents of Al-Mohssam Village, in the northern Hajjah Province, said two children and five men and women from the same family were killed in the overnight raid on their home.
The Saudi-led alliance launched nearly 20 raids on southern Yemen in the port city of Aden, while fighters allied with fugitive president Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Hadi made advances near the Houthi-controlled Al-Anad military base, Reuters reported.
The UN has said that more than 1,870 people have been killed and more than 7,000 wounded in the conflict since March 19.
Also on Tuesday, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asked his special envoy to Yemen to postpone Geneva peace talks planned for May 28, though he hopes to convene negotiations aimed at ending the war as soon as possible.
“The secretary-general is disappointed that it has not been possible to commence such an important initiative at the soonest possible date and reiterates his call for all parties to engage in UN-facilitated consultations in good faith and without preconditions,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
