Saudi Arabia Says It Didn’t Target Yemen Prison In Airstrikes

Saudi Arabia said it didn’t attack a prison in Yemen’s Saada region Friday morning, state-run SPA reported, citing defense ministry spokesman Turki al-Maliki.

The statement disputes claims by the International Committee of the Red Cross that said more than 100 people were killed or wounded Friday when the Saudi-led coalition bombed a prison operated by Yemen’s Houthi fighters.
