Not less than 35 workers have been killed by a blast which occurred at a dairy factory in western Yemen, medics say, as Saudi-led air strikes continue against Houthi rebels. BBC has more:

There were conflicting reports about the cause of the overnight explosion in the Red Sea port city of Hudaydah. Witnesses said coalition aircraft hit warehouses belonging to the factory. Anti-aircraft guns then returned fire, before the factory itself caught fire.

The UN has expressed alarm at the rising number of civilian casualties. On Tuesday, the high commissioner for human rights warned that Yemen seemed to be “on the verge of total collapse”.

A 10-nation coalition led by Saudi Arabia has been conducting air strikes on the Houthis and allied army units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh for a week, with the stated aim of “defending the legitimate government” of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
