Dozens Killed In Strike On Yemen Market


Reports from Yemen say at least 41 civilians have been killed and dozens of others wounded in an air strike by the Saudi-led coalition in the country’s north.

Witnesses said at least two missiles hit a busy market in the Mustaba district of Hajja Province on March 15.

The coalition said it was looking into reports of the attack.

Hajja is controlled by Shi’ite Huthi rebels.

According to the United Nations, more than 6,200 people, half of them civilians, have been killed since the Saudi-led coalition launched a military campaign to defeat the rebels at the end of March 2015.

The conflict pits Huthi rebels and military units loyal to a former president against the internationally-recognized government.
