A helicopter gunship belonging to the Saudi-led coalition targeting Yemen's Shiite rebels hit a truck in the country's north early Thursday, killing nine people traveling in the vehicle, Yemeni security and military officials said.The attack came on the second of a five-day humanitarian cease-fire that began nearly seven weeks after the coalition began airstrikes against the rebels, known as Houthis, and their allies. The conflict has killed more than 1,400 people -- many of them civilians -- since March 19, according to the U.N. The country of some 25 million people has endured shortages of food, water, medicine and electricity as a result of a Saudi-led blockade.The new U.N. envoy, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, left Yemen on Thursday, one day after meeting with leaders of Saleh's one-time ruling party.
