Yemeni palace guards shoot dead 16-year-old boy in Aden
A Yemeni child was killed by guards manning the Maasheq Presidential Palace in the southern city of Aden, local reports confirmed.
The 16-year-old child, named as Noah Ali Qaed, was shot dead by guards at the palace near the Sirah district, where the Yemeni government is temporarily based.
The child was reportedly working with his father on a fishing boat when they were shot at by members of the guards, reports said, though it is unclear why.
The number of Yemeni fishermen killed or wounded by Saudi-led coalition forces since the start of its operations in the country in 2015 until the last quarter of 2018, is estimated to be at more than 500, according to unofficial estimates.
Yemen has been reeling from a conflict that pits the Saudi-led coalition against Houthi rebels, the latter of which advanced into the capital Sanaa in 2014 and pushed out the internationally-recognised government.
Since then, the government has been based in the temporary capital Aden.
The conflict has left thousands dead and is described by the United Nations as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
However, Yemen's warring parties have been observing a ceasefire since April, bringing a drastic reduction in hostilities although small-scale fighting has continued.
