SANAA, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- At least eight Yemeni soldiers were killed in missile attack by Houthi rebels on a government military camp in Yemen's northern province of Saada, local government military sources told Xinhua on Thursday.

The missile attack on Wednesday evening on the 1st Brigade also wounded 28 other soldiers, the sources said on condition of anonymity.
