    Saudi-led airstrike in Yemen kills 25: Official

    June 28, Sanaa: An airstrike by a Saudi-led coalition targeting Shiite rebels in the southern province of Taiz has killed 25 people, 15 fighters and 10 civilians, Yemeni security officials have said.

    The strike, which happened early on Tuesday, also wounded eight civilians. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to reporters, officials said.

    Yemen's conflict pits the rebels known as Houthis and their allies against the internationally recognized government, which is backed by a Saudi-led coalition of mainly Arab states.

    Meanwhile, senior military commander Maj. Gen. Farag al-Bohsony says the death toll from a series of attacks on Monday night in the southern city of Mukalla has risen to 48. He says the attacks, blamed on Yemen's Islamic State affiliate, also wounded 30 people.
