Saudi-led airstrike on Yemeni prison kills at least 70: Int'l medical NGO

Baku, January 22, AZERTAC

At least 70 people died and 138 others were wounded in an airstrike on a prison in northern Yemen, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on Friday, according to Anadolu Agency.

“Last night Sa'ada City Remand Prison was hit by what was reported to be an air strike from the Saudi-led Coalition. Al-Gumhourriyeh Hospital in the city has received 138 wounded and 70 dead. They are so overwhelmed that they can't take any more patients,” MSF said on Twitter.

The group added that there were also airstrikes in the Yemeni capital Sanaa last night, including at the airport.

“We have received reports of air strikes in many other governorates across the north of Yemen. Since this morning the internet has been completely cut off,” it added.
