2 students have been killed after warplanes struck the Houthi camp in central Yemen.

The warplanes which were from a Saudi-led air coalition bombed a military base in central Yemen controlled by Houthi fighters and their army allies.

According to Reuters, military sources said 5 bombs were dropped on the Republican Guard base near the city of Ibb, apparently targeting air defence units and soldiers' quarters.

The commander of the base was wounded while a website said two students were killed, and the Houthis' Maseerah television reported three student deaths.

Overnight air raids also hit Houthi-held weapons stores near Sanaa and further north in Sanhan while other raids targeted military positions on the Red Sea coast near the port of Hodaida and Yemen's northern provinces of Saadah and Hajja along the border with Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi-led coalition has conducted a series of strikes targeted at the Houthis in a move which they say is defending the presidency of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, following the rebel attacks on him.
