4 Yemeni migrants killed in crossfire on Saudi border: medics
SANAA — At least four Yemeni citizens have been killed in a crossfire in the past 24 hours when they were trying to cross into Saudi Arabia to seek jobs, Yemeni medics told Xinhua on Saturday.
Six other illegal migrants were wounded in the exchange of machine guns and artillery fire between Yemeni Houthi militia and Saudi border guards in the Yemeni border district of Monabih, the medics said.
Such accidents have been frequently reported in this area.
The Monabih district in Yemen’s northern province of Saada has become one of the busiest routes to enter Saudi Arabia among the illegal migrants who lost their jobs since the civil war erupted in Yemen seven years ago.
