+++RESENDING SCRIPT WITH CORRECTED HEADLINE+++ ROUGH CUT (No reporter narration) STORY: A Saudi-led coalition air strike hit an office of Yemen's Houthi rebels near the pro-Houthi television channel al-Maseera in central Sanaa on Wednesday (April 8), witnesses said. Saudi Arabia and four other Gulf Arab states, along with regional allies, have waged two weeks of air strikes against Houthi forces who control the Yemeni capital and have been fighting for control of the southern port city of Aden. Despite heavy bombing of their convoys and weapons depots, the Iran-allied Houthis have fought their way into central Aden, the last major foothold of fighters loyal to Saudi-backed President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. The extent of damage caused by the Sanaa strike was not immediately known. Sanaa has endured several nights of heavy bombardment targeting Houthi positions and arms stores. But it was relatively quiet overnight, residents said.
