UAE says 15 coalition troops dead in attack in Yemen's Aden

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES: The United Arab Emirates says 15 members of the Saudi-led coalition battling rebels in Yemen have been killed in an assault on the port city of Aden.

The country's official WAM news agency quoted unnamed "informed sources and witnesses" for the death toll and blamed Yemen's Houthi rebels and their allies for the deaths.

It did not provide nationalities for those killed.

Yemeni officials earlier said three rockets slammed into Aden on Tuesday, including one that struck a hotel that is home to members of the country's exiled government.
