The Saudi-led coalition denied early on Saturday allegations it targeted a detention center in Yemen's Saada province a day earlier.

"The coalition will inform the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Yemen and the International Committee of the Red Cross on the facts and details," Saudi news agency SPA reported citing a coalition spokesperson.

Earlier, Yemen's Houthi rebels and medical charity Doctors Without Borders stated the coalition carried out an airstrike on the detention center, killing at least 70 people. The United States expressed "great concern" about the recent tensions in Yemen and called on all sides to de-escalate.
