At least 81 civilians killed in Yemen in December despite ceasefire: UN

Yemenis look at destruction in the street following air strikes on the capital Sanaa, on January 5, 2016At least 81 civilians were killed in Yemen last month, most of them in Saudi-led airstrikes, despite a short-lived and repeatedly violated ceasefire, the United Nations said Tuesday. “During the month of December, at least 62 civilians were reported to have been killed by airstrikes attributed to the coalition forces,” Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN human rights agency, told reporters. The number of civilians killed by the Iran-backed Shiite Huthi rebels and their allies was meanwhile cut by two thirds to at least 11 in December from 32 a month earlier, Colville said.
