At least 11 people were killed and 19 injured Monday after airstrikes hit a hospital in northern Yemen that Doctors Without Borders was helping operate, the group said.
The international aid organization — also known as Médecins Sans Frontières, or MSF — said Abs Hospital in the northern Hajjeh province was hit by the strikes at 3:45 p.m. local time.
The explosion immediately killed nine people, including a Yemeni staff member, the group said in a statement. Two more people died while being transported to another local hospital, NBC News reported.

The conflict in Yemen pits the internationally-recognized government backed by a Saudi-led coalition against Shiite rebels known as Houthis, who captured the capital nearly two years ago.
Despite a recent United Nations resolution calling for an end to such attacks, the statement added, Monday's airstrikes marked the fourth time an MSF facility had been targeted in less than a year.
