Yemen officials: Coalition strikes kill 2 film crew members

SANAA, Yemen — Yemeni officials say suspected Saudi-led coalition airstrikes have killed two people who were part of a crew filming a local television series in the Red Sea city of Hodeida.

The officials said Friday the airstrikes, which took place a day earlier, wounded at least two others and destroyed the filming location. The crew, which was preparing the series for a rebel-run TV channel, left the site after the strikes.

Other officials said a shelling in the central Bayda province killed one journalist and wounded another. They said the shelling was carried out by Shiite rebels known as Houthis.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.

The Saudi coalition backing Yemen's internationally recognized government has been at war with the Houthis since 2015.
