Yemen: Heavy bombing in Attan as women flee for safety

Footage was released from Attan in Yemen's Sanaa governate on Friday, as Saudi-led coalition airstrikes bombarded the area. Women can be seen running to safety was explosions cause smoke to rise in the distance. The Saudi Arabian government says it is carrying out the airstrikes in order to attack Houthi militias and reinstate the government of ousted former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who fled to Saudi Arabia on 26 March. According to the World Health Organisation, the conflict has killed at least 643 people with tens of thousands displaced since Saudi-led airstrikes began on 26 March.
