Residents of an apartment block in the Yemeni provincial capital of Amran city say at least nine civilians, including four children, were killed in a Saudi-led coalition air strike overnight. Mana Rabiee reports.
Not much is left of what was a three-story residential building in Amran city. Survivors say the building was hit three times overnight by Saudi-led coalition air strikes on this provincial capital. They say at least nine people were killed - including four children - with at least five others injured. In the morning light, rescue workers searched for more survivors, and victims... ... local residents, angry over what they say was a "random" attack. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) LOCAL RESIDENT, AMIN AZZAM, SAYING: "There are no weapons here, no gunmen, no rockets, there is nothing here except aggression and oppression." The Saudi-led coalition has been fighting to roll back gains made in Yemen since 2014 by the Iran-allied Houthi group. The coalition wants to restore President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power, but says it doesn't target civilians. The conflict has killed more than 10,000 people, and peace talks have produced little progress on either side.
