Saudi-led air strikes in Yemen city of Hodeidah kill 20

At least 20 civilians have been killed by an airstrike in Yemen.

According to local officials the strike by the Saudi-led coalition hit a residential area of the Red Sea port city Hodeidah.

Leaders of the Houthi militia are thought to occupy the city’s presidential palace, and have been the target of air raids.

This strike is the latest in a bloody war that has claimed the lives of many civilians, with many air raids hitting hospitals, markets and even schools.

The fighting between the Saudi-led coalition and Iran-allied Houthi rebels has killed upwards of 10,000 since 2015.

Aid is desperately needed in Yemen.

On Wednesday the Norwegian Refugee Council delivered food and cooking materials to the capital, Sanaa.

Along with aid, the UN have attempted to broker a peace agreement, but talks collapsed last month, and Houthi forces resumed shelling across the border into Saudi Arabia.
