Saudi-led coalition aircraft have carried out new strikes on Yemen, hours before a five-day cease-fire to allow deliveries of humanitarian aid is set to begin.
East of the capital, Sanaa, an arms depot used by Shi’ite Huthi rebels was targeted for a second day on May 12. The explosions left at least 69 people dead.
Rebel positions were also bombed in Aden.
Reports said militiamen allied to exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansur Hadi continued to fight the rebels in the port city and elsewhere in the south.
Meanwhile, an Iranian naval commander said Iran's warships would escort a cargo vessel carrying humanitarian supplies to the Yemeni port of Hodaida, which is held by Huthi fighters.
The Pentagon called on Iran to direct the ship to a United Nations distribution hub in Djibouti.
Tehran has rejected accusations that it is arming the Huthis.
