A SAUDI-LED coali­tion’s of­fen­sive against Shia rebels along Ye­men’s west coast has dis­placed tens of thou­sands of Ye­meni civil­ians, ac­cord­ing to Amnesty In­ter­na­tional.

Amnesty said Ye­meni es­capees de­scribed ‘ter­ri­fy­ing mor­tar at­tacks, air strikes, land­mines and other dan­gers’ as coali­tion forces at­tempt to re­take the rebel-held ar­eas along the coun­try’s west coast.

It said the coali­tion’s of­fen­sive has sent Ye­me­nis flee­ing to gov­ern­men­theld ar­eas in­clud­ing Aden city.
