Saudi-led airstrikes on Yemeni market

From a reader: ""Saudi-led air strikes on a market near the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, have killed at least 40 people." "The strikes hit the Nehm district, northeast of Sanaa on 27 February. "Several Saudi-led airstrikes directly struck people gathered in a crowded market in Nehm district of Sanaa province and killed about 45 civilians while 50 others were injured at the scene," said one resident. Burned corpses lay strewn across the scene and the rebel-controlled Saba news agency published pictures of children being treated for their injuries. The coalition is yet to comment."
