In Yemen, at least 35 people were killed and 13 others injured in air strikes that hit a small hotel near a Houthi-run checkpoint north of the capital Sanaa today.
A local television channel run by the country’s Huthi rebels, who control Sanaa, reported the roof of the hotel collapsed, leaving at least two bodies dangling from the building, said a witness in the Arhab area, about 20 kilometre from Sanaa.
The report said the attack hit a small hotel but made no direct reference to civilian casualties or fighters. A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, which is fighting the Iranian-allied Houthis in Yemen, was not available for comment.
The Houthis, who control Sanaa and northern Yemen, are fighting Yemen’s internationally recognized government, which is backed by the Saudi-led military alliance in a war which has killed at least 10,000 people and unleashed a humanitarian disaster.
