Saudi-led planes bomb Sanaa airport to stop Iranian plane landing

CAIRO/ADEN, Apr 29 : Jets from a Saudi-led alliance destroyed the runway of Yemen's Sanaa airport on Tuesday to prevent an Iranian plane from landing there, Saudi Arabia said, as fighting across the country killed at least 30 people.
Yemeni Vice President Khaled Bahah had called on the Houthis on Monday to heed a UN Security Council demand for an end to fighting, which the Red Cross says has pushed Yemen into a humanitarian catastrophe.
Houthis seized the capital Sanaa last September, demanding a more inclusive government and crackdown on graft. Talks with President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi collapsed and he fled into exile. Chaos set in as the Iran-allied Houthi forces swept southwards, fighting loyalist army units, regional tribes and al Qaeda militants.
Top world oil exporter Saudi Arabia, rattled by what it sees as expanding Iranian influence in the region, has been leading a Gulf Arab coalition in waging air strikes on Houthi targets since late March. Riyadh said the campaign moved to a new phase last week, but fighting has intensified again since Sunday.    ?REUTERS
