Saudi Arabian warplanes have bombed a bustling marketplace in Yemen's extreme northwest, killing at least 24 people, the al-Masirah television reports.
At least 25 Yemenis were killed when Saudi-led coalition aircraft struck a market in the northern Saada province, a local health official said on Sunday, the latest in a string of deadly incidents in the 27-month-old conflict.
This is the latest in a series of Saudi airstrikes against Yemen over the past two-plus years that hit civilian targets, with such incidents killing thousands of people and fueling worldwide criticism of growing human rights violations and outright war crimes.
The Saudi-led coalition - which accused the rebels of using civilians as "human shields" - has not claimed responsibility for that attack.
"Rescue teams were unable to reach the area for some time for fear of being hit by artillery shelling of the area", the official, Dr Abdelilah al-Azzi, told Reuters by telephone.
Several Yemeni online news outlets carried similar reports of the bombing in Saada, which sits directly along the Saudi border.
Yemen has been engulfed in civil war since September 2014 when the rebels swept into the capital of Sanaa and overthrew the internationally recognised government.
More than 8,000 people have been killed in the past two years and tens of thousands wounded, according to the World Health Organization.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
