Aircraft from the Saudi-led coalition battling Shiite rebels in Yemen struck targets in several cities on yesterday, including the capital, security officials said, as fighting raged across the country.

The Sunday airstrikes began just after midnight, officials said, hitting a military base known to be an arms depot on the outskirts of Sanaa, as well as sites near the presidential palace where weapons were being moved.

In the southern port city of Aden, they said air raids targeted the rebels, known as Houthis, as street fighting between them and forces loyal to exiled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi continued.
