An apparent airstrike at a camp for people displaced by fighting in Yemen has left 40 people dead, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said Monday.

IOM spokesperson Joel Millman said that the attack near the town of Harad in the north-west of the country had also injured 200 people, 25 of them “severely”.

Humanitarian workers with the UN partner agency working elsewhere in the country have also reported explosions, including in the capital Sanaa, Millman told Daniel Johnson.
