In southern Yemen, at least 19 fighters were killed in air strikes and in clashes on the ground, security sources said.

"It was a morning of terror," a resident of a southern suburb of Sanaa told AFP after a string of raids on military bases in the Dhabwa and Rimat Hamid areas.

In north Sanaa, coalition warplanes attacked a stadium and a camp of the Republican Guards loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has sided with the Huthis.

Other targets included another camp, in Samaa, and Dalaimi air base, near the capital's international airport, witnesses said.
The coalition has waged an air campaign against the Huthis since March 26 in an effort to restore the authority of President Abedrabbo Mansour al-Hadi, who has fled to Riyadh with members of his government.
