Air strikes kill 22 civilians near Yemen capital
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.
