>> At least 35 people have been killed in air strikes that hit a hotel in Yemen, medics say. A TV station run by the armed Houthi rebel movement, however, put the death toll at at least 41. It blamed the strike on Saudi-led coalition forces, which back the internationally recognized government.

It didn't say how many of the dead were civilians or fighters. The hotel was north of the Yemeni capital, Sana'a and next to a Houthi checkpoint. The Houthis control Sana'a in the north and are not known to have air power. An emergency worker saying there were about 100 people staying at the hotel at the time, and that there were still victims under the rubble.

A spokesman for the Saudi led coalition said it was collecting information on the incident. Earlier this month, a senior UN official condemned coalition air strikes on Yemen, saying they showed disregard for civilian safety. The war has killed at least 10,000 people and unleashed a humanitarian disaster.
