20 die in Saudi airstrikes on Sanaa
Air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen’s Houthi group on the capital Sanaa killed at least 20 people overnight, including civilians, Houthi media and residents said, in one of its deadliest attacks since 2019.
Around 14 people were killed when coalition planes struck the home of a high-ranking Houthi military official, including his wife and son, according to neighbours.
The air strikes followed Monday’s drone and missile attack on coalition partner the UAE that was claimed by the Iran-aligned Houthis and killed three people. The coalition also said it intercepted eight Houthi drones launched towards Saudi Arabia.
The identities of the two Indian nationals killed in Abu Dhabi airport have been established, the Indian embassy said on Tuesday. It also said 2 Indians were among six injured in the attacks.
