Arab-led coalition aircraft Monday struck a building in northern Yemen that housed a clinic, killing seven people, five of them children, residents said, the latest in a series of raids.The coalition says it does not target civilians in its war against the Iran-aligned Houthi group.Yemen has been torn apart by nearly three years of conflict, with most of the populous north controlled by the armed Houthi group, while the south and east are run by the internationally recognized government of President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi, which is backed by a coalition of Arab states.The coalition said it would commit $1.5 billion in new humanitarian aid for Yemen.Yemen is the world's worst humanitarian crisis, where 8.3 million people are entirely dependent on external food aid and 400,000 children suffer from severe acute malnutrition, a potentially lethal condition, according to the United Nations.
