At least 60 people are dead after a Saudi-led air strike on a prison within security complex in Yemen. People gathered outside the jail to search through the rubble for bodies. The alliance that led the strike said Houthi rebels had been using the building as a military command center. The area has been bombed thousands of times in an attempt to root out the rebels but has largely failed. Instead, schools, markets, hospitals and homes have taken a hit. We call on the international community to stop the war on Yemen, this local said. We are struggling to find food and our homes have been demolished. The coalition has been fighting the Houthi movement since March of 2015. It wants to restore the internationally recognized president, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who was driven into exile by the Iran-allied Houthis in late 2014.
