ADEN - Saudi-led coalition air strikes hit a rebel-held security building in Yemen's west on Saturday, killing at least 30 prisoners and insurgents, military officials said.

The two air strikes destroyed the building in Zaidia, north of the western port city of Hodeidah, which houses a prison holding more than 40 inmates, most of them opponents of the Huthi rebels in charge there, a military source close to the insurgents told AFP.

A number of rebels inside the building were also killed in the attack, the source added.
