Saudi-led air strikes have killed at least 80 people near the border with Saudi Arabia and in the Yemen capital Sanaa. Air raids in the Hajjah province across the border killed at least 40 people, while another 40 were killed in Sanaa due to air strikes on a special forces base allied with the Huthis. 100 others were wounded in the attack. Local residents said, it was the deadliest day of bombing in over two months of war in Yemen.
Houthi rebels seized Sanaa last September and then thrust into central and south Yemen. Seeing the Houthi advance, a Saudi-led coalition began air strikes in March in a campaign to restore Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power.
