Topic: Seven members of Yemeni family killed in Saudi-led strike: residents


CAIRO/ADEN, Yemen (Reuters) - Seven members of a family were killed in an overnight strike by Saudi-led warplanes on a border village in northern Yemen, residents said, as heavy clashes erupted across the frontier after Houthi fire killed one Saudi citizen. In southern Yemen, the Saudi-led airforce launched nearly 20 raids on Houthi fighters in the port city of Aden, while fighters allied with exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi made advances near the Houthi-controlled al-Anad military base. Saudi-led forces have been targeting fighters of the Iranian-allied Houthi group and supporters of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh since in March, part of a campaign to restore Hadi to power.
