Doctors Without Borders in Yemen Suffers 3rd Bombing in Three Months

At least four people were killed and ten others injured Sunday in a hospital in Northern Yemen supported by staff of Doctors Without Borders, The New York Times reports. At least three of the medical charity's staff members were wounded.

The bombing marks the third time in three months that a hospital in Yemen staffed by the medical charity has been damaged or destroyed. In the latest bombing, the charity could not confirm which faction in the country's civil war fired the projectile that struck the building.

The hospital is located near the border of Saudi Arabia, where fighting between Saudi troops and Yemen’s Houthi rebels has devastated many border towns and displaced thousands of people.
