14 KILLED IN SAUDI-LED AIR STRIKES ON REFUGEE CAMP IN YEMEN

SANAA, Yemen- At least 14 people were killed, when Saudi-led coalition air strikes hit a camp of internally displaced people (IDPs), in Yemen's Red Sea port city of Hodeidah on Monday, medics and a security official said.

Nine others were wounded in the attacks that struck the camp in Hali district, they added.

Local officials expected an increase in the death toll, due to serious injuries.

The targeted victims included women and children.

It was the latest in a series of air strikes by the U.S.-backed Saudi-led coalition air force, since the start of the war in Yemen, three years ago.

Last week, the coalition war planes hit a popular market in Yemen's northern province of Saada, killing eight civilians, mostly women, according to local officials.

On Mar 8, the coalition air strikes hit a farm and a popular market in Hodeidah, also killing eight people.

The coalition intervened in the Yemeni conflict in Mar, 2015, to roll back the Iranian-allied Shiite Houthi rebels and support the internationally-recognised President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.
