Over 100 Dead or Wounded in Yemen Airstrike, ICRC Says

Updated on

More than 100 people were killed or wounded Friday when the Saudi-led coalition bombed a prison operated by Yemen’s Houthi fighters in their northern stronghold of Saada, the International Committee of the Red Cross said, days after an attack on Abu Dhabi led to an escalation in the war.

The Houthi rebels’ media center said 80 people were killed, but Saudi Arabia denied such an attack took place.
