At least 17 people, including a five-year-old girl, have been killed after a ballistic missile targeted the Yemeni city of Marib in an attack the government blamed on the Houthi rebels.
The missile hit a petrol station in the Rawdha neighbourhood, said Ali al-Ghulisi, the provincial governor’s press secretary.
Information Minister Moammar al-Eryani said the attack wounded at least five others and all casualties were civilians.
He called on the UN and the US to condemn the attack, saying it amounted to a war crime.
Yemen has been embroiled in a civil war since 2014, when the Iran-backed Houthis swept across much of the north and seized the capital, Sanaa, forcing the internationally recognised government into exile.
The Saudi-led coalition entered the war the following year on the side of the government.
The war has killed more than 130,000 people and spawned the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
