'Disturbing' Reports of Civilian Deaths in Yemen, Warn International Aid Groups

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

International aid organizations as well as the United Nations are sounding the alarm over "disturbing" reports of civilian casualties in Yemen as a Saudi-led coalition continued its bombing campaign for a sixth day.

A reported 93 civilians have been killed since the start of the airstrikes, which are allegedly targeting locations held by Iranian-backed Shiite Houthi rebels. An additional 364 Yemenis have been injured in the cities of Sana'a, Sa'da, Dhale, Hudayda, and Lahj, the UN reports.
