Planes bomb Yemen capital


Warplanes from a Saudi-led military alliance bombed Yemen’s capital Sanaa yesterday, in what witnesses described as the fiercest attacks on the city in over five months of war.

The air strikes hit houses of political leaders in the Iran-allied Houthi movement and military bases.

Meanwhile, in the eastern port town of Mukalla residents said three suspected al-Qaeda militants were killed in an apparent drone strike on a vehicle near the airport.
