The Saudi-led Arab Coalition said on Friday that the Houthi rebels in Yemen have executed 14 soldiers from the Republic Guards.

The men were accused of being “cowards” during an assault against the Saudi city of Njaran, news agencies have reported. Sources have revealed that 60 Houthis were apparently killed in one day during an incident across the border with Saudi Arabia.

According to comments coming out of the General People’s Congress, ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh has called for an “urgent” clarification from the Houthis about the execution of the soldiers that took place on Thursday.
