Air strikes, shelling kill 19 Yemeni civilians, state news agency reports

SANAA - An Arab air strike and Saudi artillery shelling in northern Yemen killed 19 civilians and wounded dozens of others, Yemen's state news agency Saba reported late on Wednesday, as residents reported further air raids around the country on Thursday.
The report by Saba, which is controlled by Yemen's dominant Houthi movement, could not be independently confirmed.
Local sources told the agency that Wednesday's air strike had killed 13 people. They also said six people had been killed when their car was struck by a tank shell in a neighbouring district near the border with Saudi Arabia.
