AFP reports that a Saudi airstrike hit a sewing workshop in Sanaa on Sunday, killing two and wounding at least 15 people.

Another employee is unaccounted for, and rescue workers are currently searching the rubble for the missing person. 

"Two employees, including a 14-year-old boy, were killed and 15 others wounded in the overnight air raid," Faisal al-Musaabi, the factory owner said to AFP.

Reports from Houthi rebel media record the damage from the attack at 11 employees killed and four wounded. 

Airstrikes have increasingly targeted civilian locations in Sanaa, including a university and an MSF hospital in recent months.

The UN estimates that over 2,500 civilians have been killed since the conflicti n Yemen began in March 2015.
