At the least 20 civilians killed, together with youngsters, in north Yemen

DUBAI (Reuters) – At least 20 civilians, including women and children, have been killed in a village in northern Yemen, Saudi and Houthi media reported on Monday, in an attack both sides blamed on the other.

The Houthis’ Al Masirah television said 23 civilians were killed in air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition’s air strikes.

Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV said the Houthis had carried out a series of executions against Hajour tribes who have begun an uprising against the movement. It quoted unnamed sources as saying 20 women and children from two families were killed.

Reuters was not able to independently verify the reports.
