Yemen yet again faces another Saudi-led coalition air strike which killed at least thirty people in a rebel military police camp.
Most of the people who died in Sanaa, Yemen’s capital, were claimed to be detainees inside the camp.
According to the UN, the recent strikes were reported to have demolished the building and more than 8,670 people have been killed and 49,960 injured since the coalition intervened in the conflict in 2015.

Britain train fares will rise by an average of 3 per cent from January next year.
All the fares on journeys in 2018 have been published, the biggest increase since 2013, including season tickets and off-peak leisure tickets.
Passengers in the north of England will face an even greater increase, with Northern putting fares up by 4.7 per cent and TransPennine Express fares rising by 4.6 per cent.
The Rail Delivery Group admitted it is a "significant" rise and unions describe the increase as “another kick in the teeth” for all passengers in UK.
Reasons for the rail increase
The main reason why rail fares will rise so high is that the pace of the rail system improvement has not kept up with the increasing number of rail passengers in the UK.
During the last 14 years, the number of pas
“The 'Jungle' smelled of freshly baked bread and CS gas. I could not breathe and went down. An Afghan who was running in the same direction grabbed me and supported me to the back garden where there was a bit of air”, says Chiara Lauvergnac, one of the activists in Paris from London. In the final days of the Calais Jungle demolition, over 10,000 refugees were ordered to relocate in one week by riot police squads armed with flashballs, gas grenades, rubber bullets, automatic rifles, water cannons, armoured vehicles, truncheons and gas spray bottles.
“Usually the camp got gassed towards the end of the day - you could climb the hill to try escape the gas clouds and watch the sunset from there, with gas grenades falling all around,” she continued. After the destruction of the camp, she says

Outside the Supreme Court in London this week, two groups stood opposed: the Brexiters and the Remain camp. They were positioned on opposite sides of the court entrance, and supposedly, on opposite sides of the political spectrum. “Brexit is racist,” claimed one group. The other chanted: “The people have spoken.” Although they disagree on issues such as sovereignty, these groups have more in common than they acknowledge. Still there are wide social schisms across the country. In such circumstances, how will Labour regain support?
Fifty two per cent of voters wanted to Leave the EU and 48 per cent voted Remain. The divide over Brexit doesn’t bode well for the electoral prospects of any political party. The Secretary of the Labour Party constituency of Chippenham, Andy Newman is well

A surprise nomination at last week's Grammy announcements has left the world wondering who exactly is Sturgill Simpson? And why is he on-par with superstars Beyonce and Adele?
Last week, the American country singer left many music fans baffled after his third album, A Sailor's Guide To Earth, was nominated for Album of the Year at the Grammys. Up against Beyonce's revolutionary 'Lemonade,' Adele's heartbreaking '25,' Drake's radio-friendly 'Views,' and Justin Bieber's comeback album 'Purpose,' even Simpson himself wasn't expecting it, telling the New York Times he wished Frank Ocean had got it instead.
But the 38-year old country outsider is adored by critics, and he's on his way to becoming a household name.
