Seven killed after missile hits Yemeni hospital

A missile struck outside a hospital in northwestern Yemen on Tuesday (March 26), killing seven people, including four children, Save the Children said in a statement.

The strike at a gas station near the entrance of Kitaf rural hospital 60 miles (100 km) from the city of Saada killed a health worker and their two children, the organization said. Save the Children said it supports the hospital.

Two more children and a security guard were among the other dead, and eight people were wounded, the group said.

Tens of thousands of people have died in the war pitting the Houthis against the Saudi-led coalition, which intervened in Yemen in 2015 to restore the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power.
