By Mohammed Ghobari CAIRO (Reuters) - Planes from a Saudi-led coalition struck Yemeni provinces near the Saudi border overnight, killing at least 43 civilians, Houthi sources said, as 22 aid agencies warned that fuel shortages could halt their work. The strikes occurred after Yemen's Houthi fighters fired mortar bombs and rockets at a Saudi Arabian border town on Tuesday for the first time since the coalition began a military campaign against them on March 26. The conflict has disrupted imports in Yemen, where about 20 million people or 80 percent of the population are estimated to be going hungry, a statement by the United Nations and the Yemen International NGO Forum said.
Police officer dies after shooting in north Idaho
(Reuters) - A police officer died of his wounds after he was shot by a man he was trying to stop in northern Idaho on Tuesday, officials said. Coeur d'Alene police sergeant Greg Moore was making a suspicious person check on Tuesday morning when the man opened fire, said police. The man then drove off in Moore's patrol car and led officers of a neighboring city on a high-speed chase, Post Falls Police Chief R. Scot Haug told reporters. The shooting comes a day after a New York City plainclothes police officer died from a gun shot wound to the head suffered during a confrontation with a suspect over the weekend.
