15 killed in blasts after strikes on Yemen arms depot: medics

SANAA: -At least 15 civilians were killed in explosions that followed an air strike by Saudi-led coalition warplanes on a missile depot in the rebel-held Yemeni capital, medics said.

Dozens others were wounded, medics said, as scores of nearby houses and vehicles were destroyed after the raid on the base on Fajj Attan hill, south of Sanaa, witnesses said.

The base belongs to the missile brigade of the elite Republican Guard, which remains loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh who has been accused of siding with Huthi rebels in their fight against the government.
