Children Among 22 Killed In Yemen Strikes: UN

At least twelve children and 10 women have been killed by strikes in Yemen's northern province of Hajjah.

In a statement, the UN's Humanitarian Coordination Office said, up to 30 people were reported wounded, including 14 children, several of whom "require possible evacuation to survive".

Some areas of Hajjah province are controlled by government forces, while others such as Kushar district which was hit by the strikes are in the hands of the Huthi rebels.

According to the UN, the vast majority of the population needs humanitarian assistance, and 10 million people are "a step away from famine".
