Nine were killed in a Saudi-led coalition airstrike on Amran city in north of the Yemeni capital Sanaa early Monday, local sources said.

The victims, mostly women and children, were killed when their family house was destroyed in the strike, which also severely damaged the nearby houses, a medic, a local official and a Xinhua photographer at the scene said.

A medic official said that 20 other residents from the adjacent houses, including women and children, were wounded in the airstrike.

Other four airstrikes hit a nearby military camp, a police station, a post office and a telecommunication center.

Local officials in Amran city, about 50 km north of the capital, did not allow journalists and photographers to take pictures of the other targeted sites, while refusing to reveal the number of the victims there.

The attack was the latest in a series of airstrikes that resulted in the deaths of civilians in Yemen.

Two weeks ago, a Saudi-led coalition airstrike killed a family of eight in the country's northern province of Saada, according to local officials and residents.
