UN Security Council calls for immediate end to hostilities in Yemen.

The United Nations has condemned a Saudi-led airstrike in the northern province of Saada that killed dozens of people.

Saudi-led coalition warplanes have bombed a camp in the northern city of Saada, killing at least 70 people and wounding more than 140 others, officials say.

 

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said the UN chief had condemned “the airstrikes launched today by the Saudi-led coalition against prisons in Saada.” Dujarric said further airstrikes were carried out by the coalition in Yemen on Friday, adding that the airstrikes also killed and injured civilians, including children.

 

He said an airstrike on Hodeidah’s telecommunications centers had been tightened and severely disrupted vital internet services in much of the impoverished country.

 

“The secretary-general is calling for an immediate, transparent investigation into these incidents to ensure accountability,” Dujarric said, adding that Guterres also called for an immediate end to hostilities.
