UNITED NATIONS, United States, Aug 24, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – At least 22 children and four women were killed by a Saudi-led coalition air strike while fleeing fighting in Yemen, the UN aid chief said Friday, condemning attacks on civilians.

Four children were also killed on Thursday in a separate air strike in Al-Durayhimi district, south of the rebel-held city of Hodeida, said Mark Lowcock, the UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs.
