Yemen war: Air strike on hotel outside Sanaa 'leaves 30 dead'

Children among 14 dead in new raid on Yemen

At least 54 people were killed and dozens of others wounded Wednesday when the Saudi-led worldwide coalition carried out airstrikes on Houthi rebels here in the Yemeni capital, medical sources told EFE.

The hotel was north of the Yemeni capital Sanaa and next to a Houthi checkpoint.

Since then, thousands of people have been killed in the conflict, majority civilians.

The Houthis control Sanaa and the north and are not known to have air power.

A United Nations official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk about the events before the release of an official report, said a conservative estimate was that 30 people were killed or wounded in the hotel.

On Monday, Saleh stressed his resolve to continue cooperation with the Houthi Ansarullah movement in the country to counter the Saudi-led war on Yemen.

There was no immediate comment from the coalition. At least 26 people were injured, CNN reported.Saudi Arabia has been leading an alliance of Arab states against Iran-backed Houthi militants, who toppled the globally recognized leadership in Yemen.

The building sustained extensive damage and bodies were still being retrieved from under the rubble, witnesses said later on Wednesday. Saleh has complained that the rebels have sidelined him and his loyalists, leaving them out of military and political decisions.

"What he (Saleh) said crosses the red line... and he will have to bear the consequences of his words".

"We have been stabbed in the back and called a militia, which is treason in its purest form", read the statement.

Saleh promptly left the square after speaking and shortly after heavy gunfire rang out nearby, but his supporters said it was celebratory and denied reports of clashes with Houthi fighters.

Hours later, Sanaa-based general prosecutor Abdel-Aziz al-Baghdadi announced that he is taking legal measures against dozens of Saleh's party members over allegations that they harmed national security and spread false news.

However, tensions between Saleh and the Houthis are on the rise.
