Saudi-led air strike on Yemen rebel bastion kills 23

 A Saudi-led air strike on a Huthi Shiite rebel stronghold in Yemen`s northern mountains killed 23 people early on Saturday, tribal sources said.



Sanaa: A Saudi-led air strike on a Huthi Shiite rebel stronghold in Yemen`s northern mountains killed 23 people early on Saturday, tribal sources said.

The strike targeted a munitions factory in Saqayn, near Saada, the sources said.

Coalition aircraft also bombed the rebel-held capital Sanaa, targeting an arms warehouse and the air defence headquarters, witnesses said.

The coalition launched air strikes against the rebels in March, after the Huthis seized control of much of the country prompting President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to take refuge in neighbouring Saudi Arabia.
