Yemeni province aims to rebuild

Saada, devastated by conflict between Houthis and government forces, hopes to begin reconstruction and rehabilitation.

    Officials in Yemen's northern province of Saada say at least 15,000 people have been killed since fighting between a group of Shia Houthi fighters and the government began in 2004.

    Thousands of buildings have been destroyed, and now the province wants to begin financial reconstruction and rehabilitation projects.

    Al Jazeera’s Hashem Ahelbarra reports from Saada.
