Three people died on Tuesday following a missile strike on Yemen’s embattled city of Marib. The Yemeni government and Houthi rebels disagree on the details.

Houthi rebels fired two missiles that landed in the Rawdha neighborhood of Marib. Three people were killed, including a child. An additional 10 people, among them two children, were injured, The Associated Press reported, citing a local Yemeni government official.
