ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Coalition air strikes targeting Houthi military sites resumed in the Yemeni capital Sanaa late on Sunday (July 12). No information about casualties was immediately available. Roughly 24 hours earlier, at least 10 people were killed in separate air strikes overnight into Sunday across Yemen, relatives and medical sources said. A coalition of Arab states has been bombarding the Iranian-allied Houthi rebel movement - Yemen's dominant force - since late March in a bid to reinstate President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who has fled to Riyadh. Another 35 people died in fighting near the southern Yemeni city of Aden on Sunday, the exiled government said, in breach of a temporary humanitarian truce brokered by the United Nations. A week-long pause in the fighting was meant to have started on Saturday to allow aid deliveries to the country's 21 million people, who have endured more than three months of bombing and civil war, but there was no sign of any abatement.
