Yemen Officials: Air Strike Kills Family Of 11


Officials in Yemen say an air strike by the Saudi-led coalition fighting Huthi rebels has killed a family of 11.

Officials said the attack on October 29 hit a house in the war-torn western city of Taiz.

The city is on the front lines of the fight between Shi'ite rebels and the Saudi-led coalition.

Thousands have been killed and many more injured in the war, particularly since March 2015 when Saudi Arabia joined the fight backing the internationally-recognized government of President Abdrabbuh Hadi.

Earlier this month, an air strike that hit a funeral in the capital, Sanaa, killed 140 people.

Saudi Arabia has accused its regional rival, Iran, of providing weapons and support to the Huthis, a charge Tehran has denied.
