Saudi-led coalition bombs Yemen ‘aid port’ Hodeida

Jets from a Saudi-led coalition struck Yemen’s Red Sea port of Hodeida early on Tuesday, port officials said, destroying cranes and warehouses at a main import hub for aid supplies to the country’s north. Hodeida, which lies almost due west of the capital Sanaa, is held by the Houthi rebels and allied army units loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh. They retain control of the northern highlands and the Red Sea coastal plain as far south as Ibb, which lies around 200 kilometres (120 miles) southeast of the port.
