The warring parties in Yemen have been urged by the United Nations to ensure the protection of civilians in the country following the death of 12 refugees.

Yemen has endured heavy fighting after rebels took over the capital Sana'a last year.

A recent rocket attack on a kindergarten in Aden left 12 refugees dead and there are reports of continued fighting in various parts of the country.
