Air strikes by a Saudi-led coalition on Saada city in Yemen, where many civilians are trapped, are in breach of international law, despite calls for civilians to leave the area, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen said on Saturday.

"The indiscriminate bombing of populated areas, with or without prior warning, is in contravention of international humanitarian law," Johannes van der Klaauw said in a statement.
