DUBAI: Five Yemeni children were killed in an attack on their home in flashpoint Hodeida province, the U.N. and medics said, months into a cease-fire agreed by the government and rebels.

The U.N. children’s agency UNICEF said that the five children were “playing at home” when they were killed Thursday.

It did not give details on the nature of the attack or the perpetrators.

“Each day, eight children are killed or injured across 31 active conflict zones in the country,” UNICEF executive director Henrietta Fore said in a statement Saturday.

Medics in the Tuhayta district, in southern Hodeida, Sunday confirmed to AFP that they had transferred dead and wounded children to a hospital in the Khokha district nearby.
