An airstrike killed at least 40 people at a camp for displaced people in north Yemen on Monday, humanitarian workers said, in an attack which apparently targeted nearby Houthi fighters who are battling President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi.Yemen's state news agency Saba, which is under the control of the Houthis, 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 air strikes, launched on Thursday, have taken place so far only at night.It was the first known report of naval forces taking part in the conflict.Just four years after the 1990 unification of North and South Yemen, civil war erupted when southerners tried to break away, but were defeated by Saleh's northern forces.Saudi Arabia says it is focusing for now on airstrikes against the Houthis, rather than a ground campaign, promising to increase pressure on them over coming days.
