At least 35 civilians have died as a result of a bombing in the Yemeni capital of Sana, carried out by Saudi-Arabia-led regional coalition aircrafts, TASS reports, citing information from the Al Mayadeen TV channel.
Deposed Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh rallied thousands of supporters in the capital Sanaa on Thursday in a show of force amid an unusual public rift within the alliance fighting the legitimate government, for control of the country. Most of the dead at the hotel were merchants.
People gather at the site of Saudi-led air strikes in Arhab area, around 20 kilometres (13 miles) north of Sanaa, Yemen August 23, 2017.
Officials and witnesses told the Associated Press that the death toll was 60 and that the majority of those killed were rebels.
Vitamin B linked to increased lung cancer risk
This is the first study to prospectively examine the effects of extended, high-dose B6/B12 supplement use and lung cancer risk. A study found men who take high doses of vitamins B6 or B12 over a long period were much more likely to develop the disease.
Aid workers said rescue personnel were still sifting through the rubble and the death toll was likely to rise. They are trying to restore the internationally recognized government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.
The war has killed at least 10,000 people and displaced over three million from their homes since February 2014, Al-Jazeera quoted a United Nations report as saying.
The demonstrators came from different provinces across the country to the capital city to mark the 35th anniversary of the founding of National People Congress Party of Saleh. Saleh has complained that the rebels have sidelined him and his loyalists, leaving them out of military and political decisions.
Saleh had recently made a speech during which he labeled the Houthis a "militia", which the Houthis say has "transgressed a red line".
Saleh as president had fought successive wars against the Houthis and that could once again become the norm.
