6 killed in Houthi attack on women's prison

Apr 06, 2020 14:52 IST

Yemeni government officials claimed shelling by Houthi rebels on Sunday hit a prison for women in the country's south western province, killing at least six prisoners. The officials said the attack also wounded at least two dozen prisoners, including four children staying with their imprisoned mothers, at the central prison in government-held Taiz province. There has been no immediate comment from the Houthis. The shelling came amid a drastic escalation in fighting between the internationally recognised government's forces and the Houthi rebels in recent weeks.
