Residents: Saudi-led coalition jets bomb Houthis in Yemeni capital

SANAA - Saudi-led coalition jets on Sunday bombed a Houthi military position and army bases in the Yemeni capital Sanaa in what appeared to be more retaliation against Yemen's dominant group for the killing of dozens of coalition soldiers two days ago.
The air strikes targeted troops loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, an ally of the Houthis, and a Houthi base in what was the al-Imam University, a religious school affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood in northern Sanaa.
Residents said explosions could be heard all night and buildings had been leveled but there were no immediate reports of casualties as most people in the area had been evacuated.
"The sounds of explosions had not stopped since 1:15 a.m. (2215 GMT)," one resident told Reuters.
