ADEN: At least 40 Yemeni civilians trying to flee heavy fighting in Aden were killed on Wednesday when Houthi fighters fired shells at their boat, rescue workers and witnesses said.

They said the victims were among some 50 people who were on the boat as it left the al-Tawahi district of Aden and headed towards safer areas in al-Buraiqa in the west.
