Topic: Planes of Saudi-led alliance hit Yemen capital, Houthi heartland


Warplanes hit Yemen's Houthi-controlled capital and the Shi'ite Muslim group's northern heartland on Friday, the second day of a Saudi-led campaign to stop the militia establishing its rule across the country. Residents said aircraft targeted Republican Guards bases around Sanaa, including one near the presidential compound in a southern district, around dawn and also struck near a military installation that houses missiles. The Republican Guards are loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, the Houthi's main ally. The Saudi-led coalition began air strikes on Thursday to try to roll back Houthi gains in the Arabian Peninsula country and to shore up the authority of embattled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
