Floods in Yemen have claimed the lives of ten people

Sanaa: Sunday, Yemen’s war-torn capital and surrounding area were hit by heavy rain, causing flooding and a building to fall. As a result, ten individuals lost their lives, four of them were children.

Officials say that six people died when their car was swept away by floodwaters in a district near Sanaa. Four of them were identified as children.

Every year, heavy rains in Yemen cause devastating flooding, and the latest torrents have been getting stronger over the past week.

Traffic is almost at a stop in the city, which is run by Huthi rebels who are fighting against the Saudi-backed government.

A doctor at Sanaa’s Republican Hospital told AFP that a three-story building in the city’s historic district fell, killing four children inside.

Nashwan al-Sa mawi, the head of emergency operations in Dhamar governorate, told the Saba news agency that floods swept away a car on a road south of Sanaa, killing the driver and five passengers.

Since 2014, hundreds of thousands of people have died because of fighting between the Huthis, who are backed by Iran, and government forces. Since April, there has been a peace agreement.
