Air raid kills 11 civilians in Yemen rebel bastion: tribal

An air strike killed 11 civilians and wounded eight others in the Huthi rebel stronghold of Saada in northern Yemen today, a tribal chief said.

The tribal leader, who was speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity, said the raid was carried out by the Saudi-led coalition that has been fighting the Iran-backed Huthis since March 2015.

The pro-Huthi Al-Masirah television channel gave the same death toll and added that women and children were among those killed. It said 19 were wounded.
