6 Killed, UN Heritage Site Damaged in Yemen (http://www.voanews.com/content/six-killed-in-yemen-un-heritage-site-damaged/2819426.html)

Saudi-led airstrikes in Yemen killed at least six civilians Friday and destroyed historic buildings in Sana'a, and the United Nations delayed peace talks that were due to open in Geneva on Sunday.

Reports from the U.N. cultural agency said the latest airstrikes destroyed ancient multistory homes, towers and gardens, some of them up to 2,500 years old, in the capital's Old City neighborhood known as Al-Qasimi.

UNESCO's director condemned the destruction of the historic buildings, which have been recognized by the agency as a World Heritage Site. Friday's airstrikes were the latest in a series of raids that have damaged or razed historic

buildings, museums and archeological sites, both in Sana'a and in other parts of the country.
