Yemeni President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi

Yemeni President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi flew to Riyadh on Thursday, as Saudi Arabia and its allies bombed sites controlled by Houthi rebels across the capital city of Sanaa.

Medical officials say at least 45 people have been killed and dozens injured from the airstrikes, the Los Angeles Times reports, and several military sites held by the Iranian-backed rebels have been reported destroyed. Schools were closed and there were widespread power outages across Sanaa, as well as long lines at grocery stores where residents who did not know what might happen in the near future stocked up on necessities.
