Saudi-led air strikes kill 29 in Yemen capital Sanaa

The Saudi-led coalition’s air strikes against Yemen’s Shiite rebels and their allies have killed 29 people, including civilians, in the capital Sanaa, according to officials.

The air strikes hit an apartment building in the centre of the capital, a Unesco world heritage site, killing a family of nine, said the security and medical officials, who remain neutral in the conflict that has divided the country’s security forces.

One more civilian was killed and the search for more that may be buried under rubble is ongoing.
