39 killed in strike on Al Houthi police camp

Campaign by the Western-backed coalition on Al Houthis has escalated since Saleh was assassinated last week

Dubai: Saudi-led coalition aircraft struck a military police camp in the Al Houthi-controlled Yemeni capital Sana’a on Wednesday, killing at least 39 people and wounding 90 more, including some prisoners, an official and witnesses said.

The strike is part of an air campaign by the Western-backed coalition on the Iran-allied Houthis that has escalated since Al Houthis crushed an uprising last week led by former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh and killed him.

One official in the camp said the coalition aircraft had launched seven raids on the camp, located in the eastern part of Sanaa, where some 180 prisoners were being held.

It was the latest in a string of air raids the coalition has conducted on Sana’a and other parts of the country against the militant group.
