Topic: Nine dead in air raid on area inhabited by Yemeni ex-leader's relatives


By Mohammed Ghobari SANAA (Reuters) - Nine people were killed when Saudi-led coalition warplanes bombed a district in the Yemeni capital Sanaa inhabited by relatives of ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh, residents and medics said. The air raid, which also wounded at least 60 people, came ahead of planned U.N.-sponsored talks in Geneva aimed at ending Yemen's conflict that has drawn in regional powers, including the world's top oil exporter Saudi Arabia. Residents said the warplanes had targeted vacant houses in Bait Me'yad, a district near the heart of Sanaa that is home to a number of relatives of Saleh, whose loyalists are allied with Houthi forces, the dominant armed faction in the conflict.
