Saudi-led coalition in Yemen says 145 rebels killed near Marib

The Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen said Wednesday it had killed 145 Huthi rebels in 24 hours in air raids near Marib, the final northern stronghold of pro-government forces.

The coalition, which backs Yemen's internationally recognised government, has claimed near-daily strikes over the last three weeks, that it boasts have inflicted heavy losses on the Iran-backed Huthi rebels.

But the insurgents rarely comment on losses, and AFP could not independently verify the toll.
