Dozens killed by 'air strike' in Yemen

An air strike has killed at least 40 people at a refugee camp in northwest Yemen.

State media said Saudi planes were responsible, but the Yemeni foreign minister said "artillery strikes" by Houthi rebels were to blame.

A Saudi Arabian-led coalition has been targeting Shia Houthi rebels across the country in support of Yemen's embattled president, Abdabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Fresh strikes last evening hit an arms depot in Sanaa.

Residents from the area around nearby were seen fleeing their houses after the explosions.
