41 Yemeni civilians dead in coalition raids

Sanaa: At least 41 Yemeni civilians were killed when Saudi-led coalition warplanes hit a market Tuesday, 15th March 2016  in the rebel-held northern Hajja province, medics and tribal sources said.
An official at a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said the facility had received the bodies of 41 people killed in the raids, along with 35 people who were wounded.
A health official in Hajja said the casualties were civilians and included children, adding that "the toll could rise".
Local officials and tribal sources told AFP that coalition warplanes carried out several raids on the market in the town of Mustabaa.

The rebel-run sabanews.net website said that the coalition carried out two raids at the market and a restaurant in the area and gave a toll of 65 civilians dead and 55 wounded.
