One dead, several wounded after Saudi Arabia 'intercepts Yemen missile'

One dead, several wounded after Saudi Arabia 'intercepts Yemen missile'

Fragments from a missile launched into Saudi Arabia from Yemen by Houthi forces killed one civilian and wounded 11, Saudi state media said on Thursday.

The Houthis have fired a number of ballistic missiles at the Saudi capital, Riyadh, and other cities. Most have been intercepted by the Saudi military.

"This is yet another example of the blatant violations of worldwide humanitarian law that we have seen in Yemen over the past three years-from indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks on civilians, denial of access to humanitarian aid and the use of starvation as a weapon of war-it's the people of Yemen, not the warring parties, who are paying the ultimate price".

Speaking to the BBC last month, Mr Hadi said that military intervention by the Saudi-led coalition had gone on longer than expected but the alternative, he added, was far worse.

The Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen remained brazenly defiant on its new crime, calling the massacre a "legitimate action".

In response, Houthi spokesman Mohammed Abdulsalam called the coalition statement "absolutely ridiculous".

Nearly 10,000 people - two-thirds of them civilians - have been killed since the Houthi movement took control of much of the north of the country, including the capital Sanaa, in 2014, forcing President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi into exile in neighbouring Saudi Arabia. Three civilians were killed by a Houthi missile fired at Jazan in June.

It was unclear how numerous dead in total were children and how many air strikes were carried out in the area, in northern Yemen, near the border with Saudi Arabia.

In one clip, thousands of people bombard Gili Trawangan's main beach in a chaotic Dunkirk-style bid to board the vessels. Today a second strong quake, measuring 5.2, hit the island region, hampering rebuilding and evacuation efforts.

Alarmed by the rise of a group they saw as an Iranian proxy, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and seven other Arab states intervened in an attempt to restore the government.

"We trust when they say that they will investigate that they will investigate".

Media captionThe conflict in Yemen has been raging for years - but what is it all about?

"Our teams are working to save as many people as they can".

There was no breakdown in the casualties and it was not immediately clear how numerous victims were on the bus itself and how many were pedestrians in the immediate area around it.

Worldwide rights groups repeated calls for an end to the war and strongly condemned the bus attack and other civilian massacres. Residents remain apprehensive of disarmament because of lack of confidence in the authorities.

So far, almost 10,000 people have died in the war in Yemen, which has unleashed what the United Nations describes as the world's worst humanitarian crisis. We urge all parties to agree to an immediate cessation of hostilities, return to the negotiation table to commit to a ceasefire and cooperate with the U.N. Special Envoy Martin Griffiths.

"The main goal of the meeting is to have the opportunity to consult with Yemeni social and political figures who possess a unique knowledge of the Yemeni society", said Mr Griffiths, who chaired the meeting.
