Eight civilians killed in Yemen displaced center bombing

Eight civilians were killed and 30 others wounded in a “shocking” bomb attack against a center for displaced people in Yemen, the UN says.

The bombing hit the center in the Haradh district in the northwestern province of Hajja on Saturday, according to the UN humanitarian coordinator for Yemen, Lisa Grande. She did not name the party behind the attack.

“Any attack on a civilian site is unconscionable and a clear violation of international humanitarian law,” Grande says in a statement.

“An attack like this cannot be justified — ever.”

The center is in an area under government control in Hajja, but the Houthi rebels control other parts of the province.
