Shina J. O


At least 78 people have been killed, 13 others in critical situation in a crush at a school in the Yemeni capital Sanaa
during a distribution of charity for Ramadan.

Video footage on social media shows chaotic scenes after the incident in the Bab-al-Yemen area of the city.

Reports say hundreds of people crowded into the school to receive donations, which amounted to about $9 (£7) per person.

Those responsible for the distribution have been detained, and an investigation is under way, the interior ministry said.

Spokesman for the ministry blamed the crush on the “random distribution” of funds without coordination with local officials.

Women and children were among the dead

Houthi rebels have run the city since they drove out the government in 2015.
