China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

The Saudi-led coali­tion fight­ing in Ye­men has killed 109 civil­ians in airstrikes in the past 10 days, in­clud­ing 54 peo­ple at a crowded mar­ket and 14 mem­bers of one family on a farm, UN res­i­dent co­or­di­na­tor Jamie McGoldrick, the top UN of­fi­cial in Ye­men, said on Thurs­day in a state­ment. The coali­tion later said the state­ment was “bi­ased” to­ward the Houthi rebels and the UN needs to re­view the hu­man­i­tar­ian work mech­a­nism and the com­pe­tence of its em­ploy­ees in the coun­try.
