An airstrike killed at least 40 people at a camp for displaced people in north Yemen Monday, humanitarian workers said, in an attack that apparently targeted nearby Houthi fighters.Yemen's state news agency Saba, which is under the control of the Houthis battling President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi, said the camp at Haradh was hit by Saudi planes. It said the dead included women and children and showed the bodies of five children laid out on a blood-streaked floor. A humanitarian worker said earlier that the strike hit a truck of Houthi militiamen at the gate to the Mazraq camp, near Haradh, killing residents, guards and fighters.Most of the airstrikes, launched Thursday took place only at night.While Hadi's fighters ceded ground around Aden, Pakistan announced it would send troops to support the Saudi-led coalition.Saudi Arabia says it is focusing for now on airstrikes against the Houthis, rather than a ground campaign, promising to increase pressure on them.
