Heaviest air strikes yet rock Yemeni capital Sanaa: residents
By Mohammed Ghobari CAIRO (Reuters) - Dozens of air strikes hit the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Thursday, in what residents described as the heaviest aerial attacks yet in nine months of war, days after a Saudi-led coalition trying to restore a Saudi-backed government ended a fragile ceasefire. A coalition led by Saudi Arabia and its Sunni Muslim allies which supports Yemen's embattled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi has been fighting the Shi'ite Houthi movement, which controls the capital. Meanwhile, Yemen's pro-Hadi foreign ministry declared the representative of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights persona non grata after what it said were unfair statements, a news agency run by the Hadi government, sabanew.net, reported.
