(Reuters) -- Air strikes by the Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen have killed at least 136 civilians and non-combatants since December 6, U.N. human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a regular U.N. briefing on Tuesday.

Incidents verified by the U.N. included seven air strikes that hit a prison in the Shaub district of Sanaa on Dec. 13, killing at least 45 detainees thought to be loyal to the so-called President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is supported by Saudi Arabia.
