Houthis Claim Air Strike Raids Killed 43 Civilians

A Reuters report quotes Houthi sources who say planes from a Saudi-led coalition struck Yemeni provinces near the Saudi border overnight, killing at least 43 civilians. Twenty-two aid agencies warned that fuel shortages could halt their work. The strikes reportedly occurred after Yemen's Houthi fighters fired mortar bombs and rockets at a Saudi Arabian border town on Tuesday for the first time since the coalition began a military campaign against them on March 26. The conflict has disrupted imports in Yemen, where the UN says about 20 million people are going hungry.
