Houthis say 16 Yemenis killed in Saudi airstrikes

Yemeni Houthis said on Monday Saudi Arabian warplanes killed 16 Yemenis in a barrage of strikes over two days in the Yemen-Saudi border area.

The Houthis -- named after their leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi -- said on their website six people were killed and six more wounded when strikes destroyed two houses on Sunday.

Strikes killed 10 and wounded 13 in a market in another area on Saturday, the Houthis said in a separate website statement.

Saudi defence ministry officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

Yemeni warplanes also struck targets in the Saada region on Sunday, pounding it with rockets and mortar fire, the Houthis said. The Houthis said they had disabled an armoured vehicle and toppled a tank into a valley.
