U.S.-backed Saudi Attack on Yemen Kills 60

Sanaa, October 31 (RHC)-- In Yemen, at least 60 people were killed and scores more wounded over the weekend when Saudi-led coalition warplanes bombed a security complex near the Red Sea.  Many of the dead were prisoners or guards at a prison facility run by Houthi rebels. 

The United States has supplied Saudi Arabia with intelligence, airborne fuel tankers and advanced weaponry, even as Saudi warplanes have bombed Yemeni schools, markets, homes and hospitals, killing hundreds of civilians. 

The U.N. says a Saudi-imposed blockade has left at least 14 million Yemenis short on food.  The World Health Organization is warning of a growing cholera outbreak in Yemen that has killed at least 40 children and sickened more than 1,400 others.
