    At least 26 people were killed by a Saudi-led bombing in Yemen's capital, including a journalist at a nearby television station headquarters.

    At least 26 civilians were killed and over 200 were injured after Saudi-led coalition jets bombed a missile warehouse in Yemen's capital Sanaa, medical sources told Sputnik.

    "Over 200 people have been injured, many of them are still trapped under the debris," the source told Sputnik.

    According to the source, missiles at the warehouse continue to explode.

    The bombing also killed Yemeni television anchor Mohammed Shamsan and several journalists, according to Bahrain's al-Wasat newspaper. The headquarters of the Yemen al-Yaum television channel are located near the bombed site.

    Bombings by the Saudi-led coalition began in late March. So far, at least 767 civilians have been killed and 2,906 have been injured, according to medical sources.
