Al Arabiya: Saudi-led strikes pound Yemen capital

Saudi-led coalition warplanes pounded Houthi positions across Sanaa overnight, only hours after the U.N. envoy to Yemen arrived in the militia-held capital, residents said Saturday.

Among the air strike targets was a house of deposed president Ali Abdullah Saleh in his home town of Sanhan, south of the capital.

The latest air raids also hit the militia-held air force headquarters in Sanaa, arms depots in Sanhan, as well as the Dailami air base, also in the capital, witnesses told Agence France-Presse.

Other raids targeted Houthi militia positions in the oil-rich eastern province of Marib and the western region of Hodaidah.
