Saudis Warned of Serious Consequences

Iran told the UN Security Council that Saudi-led airstrikes have twice hit close to its embassy in Yemen and warned of "serious consequences" if more such bombings occur.
Ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo said in a letter released on Tuesday the embassy in Sana'a suffered severe damage during airstrikes on May 25 and April 20, AFP reported.
"I would like to warn that a repetition of similar airstrikes close to my country's diplomatic representation in the future can have serious consequences, including for the safety and security of Iranian diplomats in Sana'a," Khoshroo wrote in the letter to the 15-member council.
The Saudi-led coalition launched airstrikes on Yemen on March 26 to push back an offensive by the Houthis who had seized Sana'a and were advancing on the southern city of Aden.
President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi fled into exile in Saudi Arabia during the Houthi advance on Aden.
In his letter, the ambassador requested that the Security Council urgently address the Saudi-led air campaign, now in its 11th week.
The United Nations will open a round of talks in Geneva on Sunday between Hadi's government, the Houthi movement and other political parties to end the Yemen crisis and chart a course on a political settlement.
