Yemen: Saudi invaders murder funeral attendees

Source: Newsweek

“[The Houthi government] in Yemen said Thursday that an overnight airstrike has killed eight women and a child at a funeral reception near the capital, Sanaa. A spokesman for the [government], Abdel-Rahman al-Ahnomi, said that there was a second airstrike that hit emergency responders in Arhab, which lies southwest of Sanaa, the BBC reported. The Houthis have taken control of swathes of the country since 2015, when they forced Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi into exile. A coalition led by Saudi Arabia launched a campaign of airstrikes in March 2015 against the Houthis. At least 10,000 people have been killed in the conflict.” (02/16/17)
