‘Up to 41 people have been killed, including 30 civilians, and scores injured after a small hotel near a Houthi rebel checkpoint collapsed Wednesday following an overnight Saudi-led aerial bombardment, reports the AP, citing Yemeni officials.

The coalition carried out multiple airstrikes in Yemen overnight killing both Shiite Houthi rebels and civilians, according to unnamed Yemeni officials, cited by the AP.

At least 30 of the casualties were civilians, according to local news source Al Masirah.

Pictures from the scene in the aftermath of the bombing show two bodies hanging from the top story of the ruined hotel in the Arhab area, some 20km (13 miles) north of the capital Sanaa.’
