Yemeni officials: Saudi-led coalition hits truck, killing 9

A helicopter gunship belonging to the Saudi-led coalition targeting Yemeni rebels struck a truck in northern Yemen early Thursday, killing nine people, Yemeni security and military officials said, the latest in a series of violent incidents that have marred a humanitarian

cease-fire. The attack came on the second of a five-day truce that went into effect nearly seven weeks after the coalition began airstrikes against the Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, and their allies. The officials said the attack on the truck, which was suspected of carrying rebel weapons, took place in the northern Saada province, which is a stronghold of the Iran-backed rebels and the birthplace of their political movement, Ansar Allah.
