Air strikes kill 22 civil­ians near Ye­men cap­i­tal

The Myanmar Times - - World -

At least 22 civil­ians were killed in air strikes by a Saudi-led mil­i­tary coali­tion near Sanaa, wit­nesses said. The first strike on Septem­ber 10 hit a site where lo­cals were dig­ging an aquifer in Beit Saadan, a vil­lage of the Arhab re­gion north of the cap­i­tal. As res­i­dents rushed to help vic­tims, a sec­ond air strike was car­ried out caus­ing more ca­su­al­ties and ma­te­rial dam­age. In all, 22 peo­ple were killed and seven wounded, sev­eral sources in the vil­lage said, adding that the toll could rise be­cause some bod­ies had been blown to pieces.
