DUBAI - A Saudi-led coalition air strike killed nine civilians outside the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Sunday night, residents said, as forces loyal to the exiled government stepped up an offensive in the area.

The strike hit Odhar village in the Nehm area, which has been at the center of renewed fighting between supporters of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi's government and Iran-allied Houthi forces.

U.N.-backed peace talks to end Yemen's conflict broke down over the weekend, and pro-government forces said they had begun an offensive to retake Sanaa.
