Three children and more than 60 adults reportedly killed in Yemen airstrikes

Three children and more than 60 adults have been killed in airstrikes in Yemen, according to the Save the Children charity.
The Saudi-led coalition is believed to be behind the offensive, having stepped up operations on areas held by the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.

One of the targets where many people died was a prison run by the Houthis near the northern city of Saada, according to the Red Cross.
Save the Children said detained migrants were held in the jail and were among those who died.
More airstrikes hit near Sanaa, Yemen’s capital, which has been held by the Houthis since late 2014.

A telecommunications centre was also damaged earlier on Friday, cutting off the Arab world’s poorest country from the internet.

The Saudi-led coalition did not immediately acknowledge the strike in Saada.
Earlier this week the Houthis claimed responsibility for suspected drone attacks in Abu Dhabi, which killed at least three people and injured at least six others.
