Rockets fired by Houthi militiamen killed 14 civilians, most of them children, as fighting intensified for control of Yemen's third largest city.
 
The Saudi-led coalition opposing the Houthis also launched air raids on military bases and Houthi positions in the south-western city during the fighting, residents said, but no casualties were reported.
 
Fighters loyal to Yemen's exiled government have been contesting control of Taiz - Yemen's cultural capital - with the Houthis since April.
 
Hundreds of combatants and civilians have been killed.
