>> Airstrikes on Yemen led by Saudi Arabia killing 60 people Saturday night, making the attack one of the deadliest in the war torn nation since early 2015. Sources tell Reuters the strikes hit a prison near the Red Sea city of Hurghada, an area controlled by Iran allied Houthi rebels.

The rebels hold much of the country's northern and western territory. The Saudi-led coalition carrying out the strikes defended them saying they hit a building used by Houthi militia and forces loyal to deposed former president and Houthi ally, Ali Abdullah Saleh. The US-supported attacks have failed to dislodge the Houthis from Yemen's capital Sana'a, but many civilians have died as they've repeatedly hit schools, markets, hospitals and homes.
