Yemen war: at least 125 killed in Sanaa fighting

Air strikes by a Saudi-led coalition rocked Yemen’s capital Sanaa overnight, as fighting between previously allied rebel forces raged for a sixth day.

The coalition, which backs Yemen’s government, reportedly hit positions near the airport and interior ministry controlled by the Houthi movement.

The Houthis meanwhile claimed they were making gains against supporters of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Aid workers said the violence had left civilians trapped inside their homes.

Pro-government forces were also reported to be advancing on the city from the north-east after capturing Houthi fortifications in the Nihm area.
