Saudi-led strikes on Yemen hit party HQ of Houthi ally Saleh

Saudi-led air raids pounded the Sanaa headquarters of Yemen’s former president Ali Abdullah Saleh’s General People’s Congress party late on Sunday, killing and wounding several people, witnesses and a party official said. The strikes coincided with a visit to the capital by the UN special envoy to Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, who is seeking to arrange a pause in fighting until the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan on about July 17 to allow for deliveries of humanitarian aid. The General People’s Congress party’s assistant secretary general, Faeqa al-Sayed, said the party headquarters had been destroyed.
