Yemen officials say rebels hit displacement camp, killing 1

CAIRO (AP) — Yemeni officials say shelling on a west coast displacement camp by Shiite rebels fighting Yemen’s internationally recognized government has killed one woman.

The officials said the rebels’ Friday attack in government-held town of al-Khoukha also wounded eight children and three women.

Earlier on Friday, rebel officials said an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition backing Yemen’s government hit a house in the vital port city of Hodeida, killing one and wounding three others. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.

The coalition has been locked in a stalemated war with the Iran-aligned rebels, known as Houthis, since March 2015. An estimated 10,000 people have been killed in Yemen’s conflict, which has produced what the U.N. says is the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
