Human Rights Watch said on Wednesday that the Saudi-UAE-led military coalition battling Yemen's Houthi rebels killed at least forty seven fishermen, including seven children, in bombing attacks on fishing boats last year.

HRW also said that more than 100 Yemeni fishermen are being held in Saudi Arabia, some of whom have been tortured in custody.
