Saudi-led airstrikes targeting Houthi militias have killed at least 30 people in a district outside the capital, Sanaa.

The Saturday raid hit a popular market area in the Nihm district.

The Saudi-led alliance is fighting the Houthis and forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh in a bid to restore the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The United Nations says nearly 6,000 people have been killed in the fighting, which began after the Houthis advanced on the southern port city of Aden, where Hadi had been based. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced.
