Saudi Airstrikes Kill 60 in Yemen Prison

Saudi coalition warplanes struck a prison in the Yemeni city of Hodeidah, killing 60 people including inmates, a local official, relatives and medical sources in the Houthi-controlled Red Sea Port said on Sunday. The prison in the city’s al-Zaydiyah district was holding 84 prisoners when it was struck three times late on Saturday, the sources said. The Saudi coalition has been attacking Houthis since March 2015 to try to restore to office the fugitive president Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who was sidelined from power by the group in late 2014, Reuters reported. There was no immediate comment from the coalition. At least 17 civilians were killed in the southwestern province of Taiz on Saturday by a coalition airstrike that struck a house, officials and residents said. According to a copy of a UN peace proposal seen by Reuters, the plan would sideline Hadi and set up a government of less divisive figures.
