Saudi-led air strike on Yemen targets munitions factory, kills 23

Big 5

A Saudi-led air strike on a Houthi Shiite rebel stronghold in Yemen’s northern mountains killed 23 people early on Saturday, tribal sources said.

The strike targeted a munitions factory in Saqayn, near Saada, the sources said.

Coalition aircraft also bombed the rebel-held capital Sanaa, targeting an arms warehouse and the air defence headquarters, witnesses said.

The coalition launched air strikes against the rebels in March, after the Houthis seized control of much of the country prompting President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to take refuge in neighbouring Saudi Arabia.
