Smoke rose over the Yemen capital after Saudi-led warplanes pounded the Houthi-held city's police academy Tuesday. This is the fifth day of almost continuous attacks by the Saudi-led coalition on the northern city. The Saudi-led coalition, which aims to restore Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi to the Yemeni presidency, vowed to carry out its "heaviest" air attacks to date in response to the deaths of dozens of United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabian and Bahranian soldiers last week. According to United Nations (UN) figures, over 1,900 civilians have died, 7,870 people have been injured and more than 100,000 have been displaced since the Saudi-led coalition launched its military campaign in March 2015. The UN has categorized the situation in Yemen as a level-three humanitarian emergency, since 21 million people are currently in need of assistance, 13 million of whom require food supplies.
