    At least eight civilians have been killed after a Saudi-led coalition launched air strikes on a residential district of the Yemeni capital Sanaa.

    The Saudi-led coalition's warplanes have bombed a residential district of the Yemeni capital Sanaa, killing at least eight civilians, sources said.

    The air raids came a day after scores of Houthi fighters were reportedly killed in clashes with Saudi forces on Yemen's northern border.

    Meanwhile, the Houthi-controlled state news agency Saba put the death toll from the Friday air strikes at 20, reporting that at least 50 people more were wounded in the raids.
