    22 UAE soldiers killed in Yemen

    Sept.4, Sanaa: At least 22 soldiers from the United Arab Emirates' (UAE) military have been killed while taking part in a Saudi-led military campaign against Yemen's Houthi rebels, local media said.

    Saudi Arabia and a coalition of other mostly Arab states have been fighting since March to restore Yemen's exiled government and to repel the Houthis, who took control of the capital Sanaa in September last year.

    Since the offensive began in Yemen, at least five other Emirati soldiers have been killed.

    The Houthis said that they fired a rocket at a weapons cache in a camp used by coalition forces in the central Marib area, killing dozens of Emirati and Yemeni soldiers and destroying a number of Apache helicopters and armed vehicles, according to the Reuters news agency.
