(Reuters) - Saudi-led air strikes in Yemen's central city of Taiz late on Thursday killed 43 people and wounded 50 others, according to a report by the Saba news agency which is controlled by the Houthi movement targeted by Riyadh.

The Saudi-led air raids targeted the Sala area of Taiz, where the Houthi group that dominates northern Yemen has a strong presence. They also targeted the city's republican palace as well as other areas around the city, Saba reported.
