Saudi-led coalition drops weapons for allies in Yemeni city

DUBAI - Warplanes from a Saudi-led alliance bombed the Iran-allied Houthi movement throughout Yemen on Wednesday and dropped weapons for its allies battling the group in the southwestern city of Taiz.

The sorties show the coalition is determined to use its air power to push back the Houthis, Yemen's dominant group, a day after medical aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said coalition bombing destroyed one of its hospitals late on Monday - a charge the alliance denied.Saudi Arabia and other Gulf Arab countries have been bombing the Houthis and supporting militias opposed to them since late March. At least 5,600 people have been killed, but the alliance has made little headway toward restoring Yemen's exiled government to the Houthi-controlled capital, Sanaa.
