Children killed and injured in Yemen explosion

Sanna: A large explosion at a warehouse in Yemen’s rebel-held capital on Sunday killed at least 13 people, including seven children, and wounded more than 100, local medical officials said.

The Iran-aligned Houthi rebels, who seized control of the capital in 2014, said the Saudi-led coalition had targeted the warehouse with an airstrike.

The coalition denied carrying out any strikes in the area.

The state-run news agency in Aden, aligned with the internationally-recognised government, said the rebels stored weapons at the warehouse.

The health officials said more than 110 people were wounded in the explosion, which damaged nearby schools.
