More than 100 are believed to have been killed in air strikes by Saudi-led coalition forces on a detention center in Yemen, the International Red Cross Committee (ICRC) said Sunday.

Alliance forces said it was targeting facilities owned by Houthi rebels that had drones and missiles, but Houthi said the attack had demolished the building used as a prison.

ICRC rushed to a location in Dhamar, a city in southeast of Yemen with medical teams and hundreds of dead bodies.

ICRC spokesman Franz Rauchenstein said the location of the bombing was previously visited by the ICRC.

He said it was an empty college building and was used as a temporary detention facility.

“What’s most disturbing is that the attack targeted the prison.

“Attacking such a building is shocking and sad, inmates are protected by international law,” Rauchenstein said.

He said more than 100 were killed, and at least 40 survivors were treated for injuries at a hospital in the city, south of Sanaa.

ICRC troopers are working tirelessly to find survivors under the wreckage, he said, but fear of finding survivors is slim.
