Saudi airstrike kills ten in Yemen's Sanaa

A Saudi-led coalition airstrike killed ten people in a suburb in Yemen's capital Monday, Reuters reported.

Residents and medical sources told Reuters the airstrike that targeted a government building killed seven from the same family in the Waalan area in southern Sanaa. 

Saudi Arabia have intensified airstrikes on the capital since a missile launched by Houthi rebels killed 60 Gulf soldiers stationed in the Marib province in early September. 

International human rights groups have expressed concern over the high number of casualties in the Saudi air raids, which began in late March against Houthis and their allies when they overtook the government stronghold of Aden.
