CAIRO (Reuters) - Saudi shells hit an international humanitarian aid office in northern Yemen, killing five Ethiopian refugees and wounding ten, a local official said.

Artillery fire and air strikes hit the town of Maydee along Yemen's border with the kingdom in Hajja province, a stronghold of the Iran-allied Houthi militia that Saudi Arabia and an Arab alliance have been bombing for over seven weeks.
