Yemeni warplanes on Wednesday hit a makeshift camp for civilians fleeing fighting between the government and Shi'ite rebels, killing dozens of people, witnesses said. An ambulance driver counted 120 people ferried to the local hospital, among them dozens of dead. Three other witnesses reported a similar number of casualties in the area near the rebel-controlled town of Horf Sufyan, north of the capital.
