Yemen: Hospital bombing adds to human rights concern
Haydan Hospital in the northern Saada governorate was hit by at least two (some reports said up to six) airstrikes from around 23.00hrs on 26 October. The strikes were carried out by forces from the Saudi Arabia-led coalition. The hospital – which is supported by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) – had over a dozen people inside at the time; seven medical and other staff were reported injured. Hospital director Dr Ali Al-Mughli said the building was completely destroyed with the exception of storage rooms. While the hospital often received injured fighters, there was no military activity at the time of the attack, Mughli said.
