Houthi militiamen stand guard during the funeral of Saudi airstrike victims in Sanaa, Yemen, 24 May 2019. According to media reports, at least seven Yemenis, including four children, were reportedly killed and more than 50 wounded when the Saudi-led military coalition carried out bombings on the Yemeni capital Sanaa, in retaliation after the Iranian-aligned movement in Yemen allegedly attacked Saudi and Emirates oil ships.
