Officials: Saudi-led friendly fire in Yemen kills 20

SANAA – Yemeni security officials and pro-government fighters said Sunday a Saudi-led coalition airstrike hit allied fighters in a friendly fire incident, killing at least 20.

The officials said the incident happened late Saturday as the fighters were on a coastal road heading toward the embattled city of Zinjibar in southern Yemen. The Saudi-led, American-supported coalition began launching airstrikes in March against the Shiite Houthi rebels and their allies, who control the capital and much of the country’s north.
