The Saudi-led coalition said Friday it had killed at least 92 Houthi rebels in air strikes on two districts near Yemen's strategic city of Marib.

The deaths are the latest among hundreds to have been reported killed in recent fighting around Marib, and come during a second week of intense bombing.

"Operations targeted 16 military vehicles and killed more than 92 terrorist elements" in the past 24 hours in the districts of Al-Jawba and Al-Kassara, the coalition fighting in Yemen said, in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.

The conflict in Yemen has killed tens of thousands of people, displaced millions and has caused the world's worst humanitarian crisis, according to the UN.
