‘Dozens killed’ in Hodeidah attacks after peace talks collapse

Dozens of people have reportedly been killed in clashes and air raids around the Yemeni city of Hodeidah following the collapse of United Nations-sponsored peace talks between the internationally recognised government and Houthi rebels.

A Saudi-UAE coalition backing government forces launched an offensive in June to retake the strategic port city – the main gateway for imports of relief supplies and commercial goods – from rebel fighters who have held it since 2014.

Separately, hospital sources in Hodeidah province told AFP news agency that 84 people – 73 rebel fighters and 11 government soldiers – had been killed since the attempted peace talks in Switzerland were abandoned on Saturday after Houthi representatives failed to show up.

The casualty figures could not be independently verified.

The rebels refused to leave Yemen for Geneva, saying the UN had not met their demands – including a plane to transport their wounded to nearby Oman and a guarantee their delegation would be allowed to return to the Houthi-held capital, Sanaa.
