Yemen conflict: Many struggle to flee Saada strikes

The United Nations' humanitarian coordinator for Yemen has condemned the indiscriminate bombing of northern Yemen by the Saudi-led coalition as contrary to international law.

Reports emerging from the area speak of dire conditions for civilians in Saada City, in the heartland of the Houthi rebel movement.

The Houthis are members of Yemen's minority Shia branch of Islam and are accused by Riyadh of having links to Iran.
