Saudi airstrike on TV station kills four

A Saudi-led coalition air strike hit Yemen’s rebel-controlled state television station in Sanaa overnight, killing four guards, rebel media and the head guard said on Saturday.

“Air bombardment by the Saudi-American enemy targeted the building of the Yemen TV satellite channel, killing four citizens,” the rebel Al-Masirah news outlet said, taking a jab at US support for the Saudi-led coalition.

The head guard – himself wounded in the attack – told reporters at the scene the strike had hit his staff’s sleeping quarters, killing four of his colleagues.

“This is not a military post and there are no weapons here. This is just the house where we security guards live,” he said outside the heavily damaged Yemen TV building.

There was no immediate comment from the coalition.
