Somali refugees killed in Yemen airstrike

UNHCR is appalled by the deaths of refugees after a boat carrying them across the Red Sea from Yemen to Sudan was reportedly attacked overnight on Thursday during hostilities off the governorate of Al Hudaydah on Yemen's west coast.

Among the dead on the boat were Somali refugees carrying identity documents issued by the UNHCR, the UN's refugee agency said.

It was not immediately clear who carried out the attack late Thursday, but a Yemeni coast guard official told the Reuters news agency that a USA -made Apache helicopter was involved.

Some survivors said they believed they.

The port official said dozens of Somalis who survived the attack, as well as three Yemeni traffickers, had been taken to the city's prison.

A port official in Hodeida, held by Shia Houthi rebels, confirmed the toll.

Carnival cruise ship comes within feet of jet skiers
While the ship's captain Doug Brown attempted to steer the ship away, he was limited in how far he could maneuver the vessel. A video taken by a passenger onboard the ship shows just how close the vessel came to the sheriff's boat and the jet skiers.

The conflict began when the Shia Houthis, supported by former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and allies, seized the capital, Sanaa, in September 2014, overthrowing Saudi-backed President Abed-Rabbo Mansour Hadi's government. The rebels remain in control of Sanaa and much of northern Yemen, and the conflict, which has killed an estimated 10,000 civilians, is in a stalemate.

According to the report, there are a number of women and children among the victims.

The International Organization for Migration's spokesman, Joel Millman, says the agency has learned that at least 80 survivors were taken to hospitals.

Several refugee camps in southern Yemen are hosting Somali refugees, although not in the Hodeida area.

Local news site Aden al-Ghad reported that jets from the Saudi-led coalition-which has led a ground and air campaign against Houthi rebels since March 2015-had "intensified its strikes" in Hudaida on Thursday.

In a letter to US President Donald Trump, Amnesty International said the arms sales would only serve to further arm the Saudi-led coalition that has attacked thousands of civilians in Yemen in violation of international law.
