Saudi-Led Bombers Kill 29 More in North Yemen

An air strike killed 29 people and wounded 17 others in northern Yemen on Wednesday, the Huthi rebel health service said.
The Huthi-run Saba news agency accused the US-backed Saudi-led coalition fighting in support of the government of carrying out the raid in the Sahar district. It reported a toll of 21 killed and nine wounded, all of them civilians, AFP reported.
The rebel health official was unable to tell AFP whether those killed and wounded were all civilians.
According to the official and Saba, the raid hit a crowded marketplace in Sahar, a district dominated by the Huthis.
The rebel agency published photos showing charred bodies and bloody, disfigured faces, the purported victims of Wednesday’s strike.
The war in Yemen has pitted forces loyal to the fugitive president Abd-Rabbu Mansu Hadi against the Huthi rebels.
The conflict intensified in March 2015, when a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia joined the government’s fight against the rebels.
According to the United Nations, the conflict in Yemen has left seven million people at risk of famine and an estimated 17 million —60% of the overall population— food insecure.
