Yemen conflict: Humanitarian worker among victims of continued fighting and bombing in Yemen after ceasefire fails
The slaughter continues in Yemen following the government’s rejection of a US-brokered ceasefire, with a humanitarian worker among dozens killed on Thursday.
At least 20 people were killed by shelling that hit a market in Taiz, where fighting has intensified between forces loyal to President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi and Houthi in recent weeks.
Another 27 people died in fighting as the government continued an offensive to recapture the presidential residence and police headquarters.
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said 21 bodies had been taken to its clinics in Taiz on Thursday, including one of their own staff members. They also received 76 patients that had been wounded on both sides of the conflict.
