The deaths are the latest among hundreds to have been reported killed in recent fighting around Marib, and come during a second week of intense bombing.

"Operations targeted 16 military vehicles and killed more than 92 terrorist elements" in the past 24 hours in the districts of Al-Jawba and Al-Kassara, the coalition fighting in Yemen said, in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.
