80 Yemeni's killed in air strike

More than 80 people, including a large number of civilian refugees, were killed in a government air strike in northern Yemen Wednesday as they sought shelter from a month-long conflict between the military and rebel forces, tribal leaders said.
Local and international human rights groups have condemned the attack, which appeared to be the deadliest single episode in a worsening war between government forces and the Houthi rebels in Yemen’s remote and mountainous north.
It was not immediately possible to independently confirm the numbers killed. MORE in the New York Times
