Several Yemeni fishermen were killed on Saturday morning in Saudi-led strikes. The initial reports from witnesses say that atÂ least 40 people were killed in the attacks that hit two Yemeni islandsÂ on the Red Sea.
Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab military interventionÂ since March this year to try to restore Yemen’s President Abd-RabbuÂ Mansour Hadi and his government. They were forced into exile by an advanceÂ of Houthi fighters allied to Iran. The Houthis are also backedÂ by forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
