Saudi-led air strikes kill 20 Yemeni soldiers allied with rebels

SANAA – Saudi-led air strikes killed at least 20 soldiers who had gathered to collect their salaries at the Yemeni army headquarters in the capital Sanaa on Sunday, government officials and residents said.

They said that four explosions shook the compound in central Sanaa, where the soldiers allied with the Houthi group that dominates Yemen had gathered since Saturday evening to get their pay cheques. Residents said Saudi-led aircraft also targeted other military camps east and west of the capital but there was no immediate word on casualties.
