42 Dead After Saudi Led Attack in Yemen

A minimum of 42 people have been killed in a livestock market in Yemen on Monday after a Saudi-Arabian led coalition continued their aerial attacks against Houthi rebels for the fourth month in a row.

With the majority of the dead being civilians, and at least another 65 injured, many critically, the attack in Fyoush has rattled the nation. With only six Houthi fighters being killed, and countless livestock dead, this airstrike has hit the area quite hard. Since airstrikes began on March 25th, over 3,000 people have been killed, with half of that number being civilians. This has made the United Nations worry quite a bit as this war has turned into a humanitarian crisis in the Arab world’s poorest country as more than a million Yemenis had fled their homes.
